SHARING THE FUTURE

Alan Maskin of Olson Kundig Architects led the design of the Bezos Center for Innovation at the Museum of History & Industry which opened late in 2013. In this short presentation Maskin discusses the principle design concepts for the project.

The Bezos Center for Innovation is a groundbreaking exhibition dedicated to the theme of innovation, featuring multimedia, interactive and hands-on experiences as well as artifacts, images and oral histories that explore Seattle’s culture of innovation. Located within The Museum of History & Industry (MOHAI), the mission behind the Bezos Center is to educate visitors about Seattle’s creative history and ignite the innovator within. The 5,000 square foot exhibit is layered with rich narratives whose interactive nature facilitates discovery and enables visitors to become fully immersed in the creative process. The exhibition begins with the question, “What is innovation?”
