In a £30 million building designed by Wilkinson Eyre Architects, the National Waterfront Museum Swansea opened its doors in October 2005. Celebrating Wales and its industrial heritage, the museum has more than 100 audio-visual exhibits, 36 state-of-the-art interactive displays, and hundreds of artifacts to tell the story of Welsh industrialization.
Working in close partnership with exhibition designers Land Design, Newangle took the role of lead creative and project management company for all the audiovisual productions at the Museum.
The 'Power of Money' interactive allows visitors to explore a series of shop interiors from different time periods. Visitors can explore virtual objects by dragging them into a shopping basket, the real objects are in a showcase in front of the interactive while a 3D soundscape delivers further information in dual language.
'Communities' is a gesture based interactive where the visitor can select an object by pointing at the projection, rotate it in real time and choose to unpack stories about it
