Entry Description

The problem was to design an exhibition program that tells a sustainability story through the Sustainability Treehouse at The Summit, an adventure center for the millions of youth and adults involved in the Boy Scouts of America (BSA). The Summit is sited on former strip mining land and will permanently host the BSA's Jamboree gatherings. The design avoids outdated and formulaic exhibit solutions and, instead delivers information in surprising and unexpected ways, down to the humorous and irreverent tone of the exhibit text. Nature's processes inform the exhibit program which then translates these principles to everyday life.
