Rare Volume designed a permanent, interactive entry exhibit for the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center that celebrates more than three centuries of New Orleans history. The exhibit is a video wall standing nearly 14 feet high, and stretching 28 feet wide.

The experience attracts visitors with full-canvas motion graphics, and detects their presence through overhead depth cameras. Approaching users are presented with a touchscreen interface that offers them an opportunity to explore 175 historical events and destinations through archival imagery, maps, and text.
Rare Volume created the design system using five elements: Photography, Type, Color, Textures, and Objects. For a look and feel as vibrant as the city itself, we drew inspiration from NOLA’s rich history in the arts, culture, and architecture.
