Leicester City Council
King Richard III Visitor Centre
Dynasty, Death and Discovery
Following the amazing discovery of King Richard III’s remains beneath a council car park in Leicester, Studio MB were appointed lead exhibition designers by Leicester City Council to bring this epic story of England's most infamous King and astonishing archaeological detection to life, creating a world-class visitor experience that would spark and sustain local, national and worldwide interest.
The exhibition on the ground floor charts the King’s life and death and examines the circumstances that make Richard the man he becomes, whilst the first floor reveals one of the greatest archaeological detective stories ever told and features the first ever genome sequencing of ancient DNA. The visitor experience ends in a contemplative glass floored space where visitors are able to see where Richard’s body was hastily buried over 500 years ago.
Studio MB was responsible for exhibition and interpretive design, graphic design including branding and creative direction of AV hardware and software design.
