Welcome to 2071. Built to transform the very perception of the future as we know it, the Museum of the Future is home to immersive future environments that position visitors in an empowering version of the tomorrow. By meaningfully merging aspects of science, technology and spirituality, the Museum inspires humanity to re-imagine the future and all its possibilities. For the Museum, Certain Measures imagined an Observatory for planetary ecology in 2071. This new space consisted of the Geoscope and the Nursery.
In the Nursery, visitors peer into incubators nurturing dozens of species that could revitalize a struggling planet. In collaboration with a geneticist, we designed over 80 species of plant, insect, and animal, each with special characteristics designed to combat the environmental challenges of today and the future. Through meticulous physical models and hologram-like transparent LCD displays, visitors get a glimpse of optimistic applications of genetic engineering toward the regreening of Earth.
