9/11 Memorial Preview Site » Design
Working under Thinc’s design director and alongside one graphic designer, Chris acted as the primary exhibit designer for this two thousand square foot retail and exhibit facility directly across the street from Ground Zero. Chris sheperded the project from brainstorming and concept sketches through opening. Collaborating directly with museum staff, conservators and content developers to translate their broad conceptual goals into a build-able reality, Chris helped the team balance many competing requirements. On the execution side, Chris coordinated with media producers, graphic fabricators, display case manufacturers, AV integrators, retail consultants, general contractors and project architects to ensure the project was executed as the museum team envisioned. The entire project was concepted, realized and opened in under two months.
The Preview Site educates several thousand visitors to the area every week. It is expected to operate until 2014, when the memorial and museum themselves open to the public.
