Owner: Anchorage Museum
Designer: Ralph Applebaum Associates
Location: Anchorage, AK
The Anchorage Museum project featured very clean, elegant signage and graphics, and required a high level of coordination with the general contractor to implement. For example, the silk screened panels featuring donor names and exhibit information were imported from a foreign manufacturer and sent to CREO for silk screening, then sent back to the GC for installation. On the exterior, the electrical conduit for the main identification sign next to the entry stairs had to be coordinated and installed prior to pouring the concrete wall around those electrical components. And the etched and infilled stainless steel bars had to fit seamlessly into the wood benches provided by other. The final result is a beautiful, integrated project.
