As the visual inspiration, I looked at the owls' birth process and thought I should transform the first exhibition room into an 'egg' hub so that visitors can immerse themselves into the world of a baby owlet when they first enter the exhibition. The exterior of the egg hub is also inspired by Beijing's National Stadium, which is a bird's nest.
Playing with lights can also make the exhibition more atmospheric and memorable. Nowadays, visitors expect exhibitions to look 'nice' so that they can take photographs and upload on social media. That's why I have thought about putting the visitors in a dark room with glow in the dark lights to create a mysterious atmosphere, to make it more memorable and stimulating to senses.
