3D Exhibition Design
McMillan Park was once used as a park space, filled with a diverse community. Decommissioned and fenced off since WWII, the 25-acre site stands in the middle of staggering gentrification in NW Washington, DC, and is the focus of an ongoing battle between developers, community activists, and city officials.
PLACE uses placemaking principles to transform the site into an interactive exhibition, designed as a conduit for resolution that inspires a path forward for the community through the power of play, story, and collective action.
