How can a grain of rice prevent famine? Why does overfishing result in unemployment? The “Business and Biodiversity Initiative” travelling exhibition shows how closely biodiversity and economic development are intertwined. Developed for the business and biodiversity initiative “Biodiversity in Good Company” in cooperation with the GIZ (German Agency for International Cooperation), the exhibition was on tour in Japan and Germany in 2009 and 2010.
Thus, Archimedes developed an exhibition concept that met the complex challenges of a travelling exhibition. It had to be possible to create a similar ambience for the most diverse spatial situations, such as museums, conferences or entrance halls. The solution was a central highlight exhibit – the interactive media desk – which acted as a visitor magnet and served as the focal point of the room. Graphic columns arranged in variable layouts provided in-depth information on individual subjects.
Moreover, the exhibition system was modular and could thus be altered from venue to venue. It was robust, easy to transport and could be set up in a variety of ways. This modular approach facilitates the replacement, omission or addition of individual elements. Different columns provided an appealing information platform alternating between images and text on panels illuminated from within.
