The Heart for the Wellcome Trust

The design (with Coombe Architecture) of The Heart at the Wellcome Collection (2007) that traced the cultural significance of the heart through history in art, medicine, religion and romance. The brief asked us to create an art exhibition out of a medical subject to attract audiences from across the art/science divide. We presented a diverse array of exhibits (e.g: a transplanted human heart, a £3m Leonardo drawing, an Aztec sacrificial dagger plus books, paintings, sculptures, film, music and surgical instruments) in a visually unified and highly secure environment.
