Scope

The Museum of Electricity in Madeira in Funchal, known as the Casa da Luz, is a unique space for enriching interaction with science and history for Madeiran citizens and visitors alike. Team Power House was set with the task to re-envision the first floor exhibition space to make it a more engaging and accessible experience.

Creating a compelling, engaging space is a wide open project. We set out on this journey applying a broad arsenal of unique research methods. We had two primary research goals. The first goal was to understand the domain--electricity, and more specifically, electricity of Madeira. The second goal was to understand the medium of communication-an interactive exhibit space.

Through an extensive, multifaceted research process, we gained rich insights which we are using to shape the content narrative and exhibit design of the second floor. This publication takes you through this journey and communicates our vision and process thus far.
