An Exhibit 2,000 Years in the Making

August 18, 2017

An extraordinary exhibit over 2,000 years in the making, Terracotta Warriors of the First Emperor is a collaboration between The Franklin Institute (Philadelphia) and the Pacific Science Center (Seattle). Gecko Group and Universal Services Associates, Inc. are the design/build team that brought this remarkable project to life.

The exhibit explores the science behind China’s ancient terracotta figures in a variety of ways, including engaging interactives, powerful media, and compelling graphics. An original music score was developed for the entire exhibit and working with Klip Collective we were able to create immersive theatrical experiences about the discovery of the warriors in 1974 in X’ian, China, as well as a recreation of what the site might have looked like over 2,000 years ago featuring a time lapse projection of a warrior through time. Visitors uncover how and why the warriors were made and glimpse mysteries yet to be uncovered.

If you’re interested in learning more about this project please give us a call.
