Baukultur’s involvement with the project commenced by identifying the Vickers Vimy as a key centrepiece to the expanded airport terminal. It involved various studies of locations, feasibility and spatial explorations. During this time it included working alongside AAL to seek state & federal funding for the project that we know today.
Subsequently, Baukultur were appointed as lead designers to define the immersive visitor experience in conjunction with an expert project team that included exhibition designers Arketype, specialist conservator ArtLab, curator David Crotty, and other specialised exhibition content designers and engineers.
Working closely with key stakeholders including descendents of the crew, the History Trust of South Australia, the South Australian Aviation Museum, the South Australian Tourism Commission, influential media personalities and Adelaide Airport Limited, Baukultur navigated never-before-seen project requirements and design challenges to deliver a high quality & truly unique visitor experience coupled with best practice conservation initiatives.
