Kiosk DrawingEXLINE DESIGN is pleased to have worked closely with THE PALMER PARTNERS of Kansas City, Kansas, in concepting a complete renovation of the San Diego Aerospace Museum's guest experience. This exceptional museum facility is located in world-famous Balboa Park, and boasts the third largest collection of authenticated aerospace artifacts in the United States. The existing museum building is a classic art deco structure that currently sits on the United State's National Register of Historic Places. This exceptional statement of American architecture remains from San Diego's California Pacific International Exposition of 1935-36. It was originally built by The Ford Motor Company and featured an exhibit celebrating the history of man and transportation throughout the world. into the natural sand dune setting of the waterfront property. Situated in the center of the complex was to be an iconic “Giant Salmon” observation platform and look–out point.

An important aspect of EXLINE's creative effort for the museum's experience overhaul was the design of a new interactive exhibit entitled The History of Commercial Aviation in America. Comprised of three free-standing kiosks, the exhibit hosts a series of sequential video presentations that celebrate the colorful history of the private sector's contribution to American aviation. The award-winning video was produced by MultiImage Productions also of San Diego.

The kiosk design borrows heavily from the art deco detailing and color scheme of the museum itself. The kiosks also feature a distinctive wing-shaped plan inspired as an aerodynamic engineering aesthetic. Internally lit translites, stainless steel detailing, and motion-sensitive activators make this exceptional exhibit a real crowd pleaser.
