Coventry Transport Museum
Motor City UK
Design and Management
Coventry Transport Museum houses the largest collection of British vehicles in the world, but this radically reimagined and reorganised museum does not present the car as art, or even the car as science. It is instead an incredible 150-year social history story of Coventry’s transport heritage, its central role in the rise and fall of the British car industry, its factories, its workers, and the vehicles they built.
Despite the highs and lows of this very human story, visitors can take immense joy in what was achieved and the fact that every one of the 100+ vehicles displayed in this amazing chronology of manufacture was ‘Made in Coventry’.
The team at Studio MB were responsible for all design and implementation stages for this project, from inception to completion, including research, narrative planning, content development, concept design, developed design and technical design, graphic design, AV software and AV hardware design, lighting design, script and copy writing, illustration, plus project management and contract administration.
