Pacific Science Center - Wellbody Academy
Seattle, WA

Gyroscope was retained in 2009 to design a new permanent exhibition for the Pacific Science Center (PSC), an interactive science and technology museum serving over 1.5 million visitors per year. Gyroscope was in charge of exhibit planning and design, as well as graphic design.

Professor Wellbody’s Academy of Health and Wellness is an innovative and immersive environment that reflects the Pacific Northwest Coast in style and materials and incorporates original artifacts, objects, large and small-scale manual and electronic interactives, low-tech participatory components as well as multimedia installations.

The 7,000 sf themed environment is subdivided into separate sub zones: Nutrition, Sleep, Fitness, Hygiene, Reflection, and the Studio. Each sub area supports individual and group activities, social interaction and areas for rest and reflection. These sub areas are designed for specialty lighting and audio, display cases, media installations, graphics, and a custom on-line software interface for ‘Students’ enrolled in the Academy. Reclaimed materials are featured throughout.

Opened: November 2012
