Activate public spaces with interactive installations that communicate Nicklaus Children’s standing as the world’s most technologically-advanced children’s hospital.
Donor recognition standards, permanent donor recognition design and implementation, interactive donor recognition design and development, software design and development, design and storyboards for interpretive narration
- A large new lobby lacked key landmarks to guide visitors
- Strategic placement of interactive elements in public spaces could support an overall wayfinding strategy
- Recommended moving welcome desk so that visitors could interact directly with donor recognition and storytelling installations
HISTORY AND INNOVATION WALL
The History and Innovation Wall in the main lobby of the hospital’s new patient tower was conceived as a digital exhibit that would tell the story of how surgeons at Nicklaus used technology to save the life of a child with a heart condition previously considered to be inoperable. fig. a
Animated holograms interact with physical elements within the displays, including a 3D-printed model of the patient’s heart fig. b that allowed doctors to better understand her condition and plan a course of action for the operation prior to surgery.
The “Together for the Children” campaign donor recognition wall fig. c is a sculptural expression that commemorates donors who gave to Nicklaus Children’s Hospital over the course of a specific period of time, for a specific initiative.
To honor a growing list of past and present major contributors to Nicklaus Children’s Hospital, we also created a multi-touch interactive digital wall. fig. d A custom content-managed back end allows the hospital to add donors and match them to their contribution level at any time.
