20 dual-language (Arabic/ English) exhibits were created for this purpose-built gallery at one of the world’s largest cultural centres. These included soundscapes, films, single- and multi-user interactives, and Pepper's Ghost holograms that make ancient scholars appear in the gallery.
Visitors can learn about mosque architecture, design objects using traditional techniques on the ‘Design a Treasure’ touchscreen and listen to beautiful ancient Arabic poetry.
The captain's desks of Columbus, Magellan and Vasco da Gama are shown on individual 55inch interactive touchscreens where visitors can handle items, unpack information about travellers of the time and learn how European explorers impacted the Golden Age.
The exhibition finale is ‘Legacy of the Golden Age’, a huge 16-user table with a futuristic design. Visitors activate the content via pucks that allow users to reflect on the legacy of the Golden Age.
