Bruce D. Campbell Farm & Food Discovery Centre
Origin Studios led the development of this new Discovery Centre, which opened in 2011-2012. We created the centre’s master plan, designed all exhibit spaces, interactives and graphics, and supervised final installation. In this instance, our interior design and spatial layout also influenced the architecture of the building. The centre is themed around environmental responsibility and food safety, and the four main sections include: crop management; meat production; the food processing cycle; and an examination of food choices, healthy eating, and food safety. An extensive series of interactives—both manual and digital—effectively support the key messaging throughout.
This project was produced for the Department of Agriculture at The University of Manitoba, and is located on an experimental farm where pigs and cattle are raised. The site is dedicated to sustainable farming practices, and employs methodology derived from the 1800s to create favourable conditions for the livestock, while managing odours in a visitor-friendly way!
