Maple & Associates was asked to assist in the development of new exhibits for the Dinosaur Hall at the Los Angeles Natural History Museum. Numerous CAD renderings were required to visualize the design development drawings and study their relationship to graphic layouts.
The 1913 Mezzanine exhibits required a completely new design approach to include a variety of hands-on and interactive exhibit components.
The Dinosaur Hall is twice the size of the Museum’s old dinosaur galleries. It rivals the world’s leading dinosaur halls for the number of individual fossils displayed, the size and spectacular display approach, including the world’s only Tyrannosaurus rex growth series, and the way that paleontology comes alive! The updated Dinosaur Hall will enable visitors to encounter science as a vibrant, ongoing investigation and opportunity for discovery.
The centerpiece of the exhibition is the Tyrannosaurus Rex growth series—featuring a baby, juvenile, and sub-adult T. Rex. It is the only series of its kind in the world.
