Client: Birmingham City Council

Project: Thinktank Science Centre

Collaborators: Event, MET, Land Design Studio, FRPL, Hotrod Creations

Thinktank is one of the UK’s major science centres covering nearly 7000sqm of exhibition area. It contains over ten major galleries commissioned from six different design companies with bespoke and innovative software and AV. Tim Gardom was Thinktank’s Creative Director, overseeing the design briefs and interpretation strategy for the whole project. 


Galleries at Thinktank cover everything from natural history to talking robots and the science under the pavement. Visitors can find out how the human body works or get involved in medical ethics discussions.


A key part this project was to establish strong relationships with stakeholders, universities and industry. In the Futures Gallery, interactives present the latest thinking on transport, past and future science, new technologies, and cutting edge medical science.


Today, the award winning Thinktank science museum offers a fun packed day for the whole family including the Science Garden, Planetarium and a packed events calendar.
