KA worked in conjunction with Ralph Appelbaum Associates, Alexander Design, and Zenith Systems to provide an environment that is all encompassing in its description of Eaton. In close collaboration with Pickard Chilton, Eaton, and The Richard E. Jacobs Group, KA developed an architectural setting that embodies and supports the lighting, sound, kinetic, and interactive displays that showcase the Eaton story.
Some of the major components of this multimedia display are a 53-foot high LED pendant kinetic display; touch tables which provide hands-on learning and real-time information; an 80-foot long computerized LED exhibit screen that also serves as a security element; and an audio system which provides tonal background in conjunction with ever-changing LED images.
While the visual and aural impact of the design is dramatic, what is not obvious is the architectural and system design that allows for these exhibits to be easily maintained and updated. KA was responsible for the technical development of the architectural elements, the seamless integration of the display components in the architecture, and the coordination of all consultants. KA served as Executive Architect on this project.
