The following gallery shows examples of more complex exhibits, both indoor and outdoor, that we have designed and built. These include exterior steel and wood structures, and interior displays made from wood, various finish materials, and acrylic display cases.
WeÂ design exterior structures like kiosks, boardwalks, and viewingÂ decks, for access to site resources, and as support for interpretive panels. These structures are frequently built by volunteers, with our assistance and oversight.
SUNY ESF Northern Forest Room – Newcomb, NY
The Northern Forest Room is an indoor exhibit at the Adirondack Interpretive Center on the SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry’s Huntington Wildlife ForestÂ field stationÂ in Newcomb, NY. The exhibit features the elements that make up the Adirondack landscape and human interaction with them through time, as well as the flora and fauna of the Huntington Wildlife Forest.
Open Space Institute – McIntyre Furnace
The McIntyre Furnace is perhaps the most intact example of a 19th century blast furnace in existence. It was completed in 1854 but operated for only parts of two years. We designed interpretive panels for the site that explain how the furnace was operated, and what it might have looked like in 1855. We also constructed decks and rails to allow safe and dramatic viewing. The decks and walls are built in the locations of original structures associated with the complex, using materials salvaged from an 1850s barn, and assembled with mortise and tenon joints details from the period.
