Chabot Space & Science Center: Dragon Skies

OUR CHALLENGE

In this traveling museum exhibit for Chabot, Delphi worked with design firm Gyroscope, Inc., to showcase major artifacts from Imperial Chinese astronomy never before seen outside the People’s Republic of China. The goal was to create an experience that was engaging and accessible for a Western audience.

HOW WE SOLVED IT

For Dragon Skies, we created dramatic walled environments that incorporate backlit graphics and inset display cases. Our expert fabrication team made sure that the intricate surrounds are in keeping with the ancient and beautiful artifacts themselves.

WHAT ELSE WE DID

This traveling exhibit had to be constructed in a way to allow for disassembly, shipment, and reuse. Delphi was involved in all logistics of moving the very large, very heavy pieces—from the receiving warehouse when they arrived from China to the facility and into the exhibit hall.
