About

Syöte Visitor Centre is a part of the national park with the same name and acts as the starting point when you arrive at the park. 

This way all visitors of the area can learn about the local species before they enter into the nature park. 

The visitor center uses hands-on exhibits and audio guides to make learning about the exhibits exciting and accessible for all. 

Besides the exhibition, the building also houses an auditorium and a cafe.

 

Challenge

The trickiest part about producing this exhibition was the remote and isolated location of the park. Should we need anything from a building store, we would have had to do a round trip that’s hours long. So the key to avoid that was proper preparation and packing an extra pair of everything we might need. 

Highlight

Looking back now the exhibition turned out both looking good, and also feeling well put together and connecting all the different parts of the exhibition and the visitor center as a whole.
