Museums + Zoos

 

FROM AMELIA EARHART TO EVEL KNIEVEL,

YOUR INTERPRETIVE DREAMS TAKE FLIGHT WITH DI.

Our work in the arts and cultural world spans a wide spectrum of genres, resulting in mutual enrichment through the interchange of knowledge and ideas. What we learn in one genre, we can apply to another. We design and build museums of History and Culture, with high-end archival casework to preserve and showcase the worlds’ stories and treasures. We also create irresistible play places for the littlest visitors who learn best by doing, such as hands-on science exhibits to explore our universe, and interactive zoo spaces to connect them with the fascinating creatures in our world.
