In February 2012 we were awarded the contract for designing and building the BodyWorks gallery within Glasgow Science Centre. BodyWorks is an exciting new approach to involving the public in biomedical sciences. This practical ‘hands-on’ exhibition uses a combination of interactive exhibits and ‘live lab’ experiences to raise awareness of the science underpinning human health and well-being in the 21st century. BodyWorks is a dynamic installation that flows organically throughout the whole of the 700 m2 third floor of GSC taking full advantage of the bright, open, riverside aspect to create an immediate ‘wow’ factor. In addition extension of the gallery through Web enabling techniques continues engagement for visitors and broaden opportunities for active participation in ongoing and new research programmes. The personalised approach of the exhibition places each visitor at the centre of the experience.
