Combining the Brilliance of Oscar Wilde with Saul Bass, for a children’s exhibition on poverty

INTERIOR DESIGN

Exhibition design for a children’s museum based on Oscar Wilde’s Happy Prince, in the style of Saul Bass.

The moral lesson of “The Happy Prince” by Oscar Wilde is that the worst aspects of modern society can be overcome by love and charity, which have the unique ability to unite men and make them whole.

The premise of the design is that a home may look whole from one angle, but may be unraveling from another. The entire exhibition is a playground with a seesaw, and a precariously balanced jungle gym which takes two people to keep the balance. In this way the project aims to teach kids about inequality, and people working together to get to a common goal.

The whole project is centered around the UN Development Goals. I picked #EndPoverty.

Graphics Designed to support the process highlighting key components of the story and overall design.
