Aim worked in liaison with Glasgow Science Centre to develop an interactive exhibition on renewable energy to be housed in a public exhibition space at the headquarters of Scottish & Southern Energy. The exhibition included a wind turbine with an ‘infinity tunnel’ ceiling which would give the impression of infinite height when standing inside the turbine exhibit.
Elements that typically run the full height of the turbine were mirrored, including lift, power cables, and the access ladder. Visitors would experience the noise generated by the rotating turbine blades via an integrated audio installation in the base of the turbine that reverberated through the whole installation. These elements combined to complete the illusion of being in a real wind turbine, with interactive educational displays recessed into the stageset to explain the science and engineering of the subject matter. A hydro exhibit provided visitors with the opportunity to charge their mobile device by pumping water into a tank and powering a turbine.
“Aim worked closely with GSC and provided excellent solutions to a number of unforeseen issues that developed on-site. Throughout the process, the attention to detail and level of supporting documentation and design presentation was of a very high standard.” - Jenny Templeman, Project Manager - GSC
Aim created a breath-taking design of an inverted infinity well, the largest of its kind in Europe, to give the impression of being inside the shaft of a wind turbine. The addition of the pulsing sound of the turbine blade passing by, added to the immersive experience created.” - Jenny Templeman, Project Manager - GSC
