The historical exhibition of the museum will be renovated. Last months we have been thinking about which pieces and stories should be in the collection and how we will design this. I contributed mainly on how we can connect our history to the present in a contemporary interactive way. This page shows some of the work I did for the museum.

Gardens of van Barnevelt
Four watercolors need to be exhibited, but because they cannot hang on a wall we need to present them in closed drawers. This is a design proposal I made for a way to exhibit them.
The watercolors show the wonderful gardens of Martinus van Barnevelt, that heve been located in the city
center of Gorinchem. Van Barnevelt was a rich man, by taking these watercolors with him on his travels abroad
he could show his special (and expensive) gardens to others. (Literally showing-off in 18th century style).
This design proposal is a mix between elements of the gardens in combination with a video and conversation between Abraham van Hoey (mayor) and Martinus van Barnevelt walking through the garden.

Floorplan and visualization of the building
At a couple moments in time we've put together an overview document. To visualize which pieces and stories we can place in the place we have been given. In order to generate more imagination, for example in a pitch document, I sketched a model of the museum so that we can fill in the spaces.
