Eleven pavilions

A magical world of children’s books was created, for both children and adults. The assignment was to bring these children’s books and their heroes to life. Playing with scale was a design principle here. The “outer skin” of the exhibition consisted of 5.5 metre high book spines, in which 63 glass showcases gave a chronological overview of Dutch books for children. A large number of showcases included a digital browser book. Eleven pavilions lay like a fallen box of bricks in the space. In each pavilion, a theme was elaborated in a different way using different media. This made every theme a unique experience. For example, the pavilion with ‘creepy’ books took the form of a haunted house, while the pavilion with travel stories was designed as fantasy vehicle to carry you on a journey on which you experience all kinds of travel adventures. This approach made every pavilion an unexpected surprise and kept the mind of the visitor focused.
