OMSI Turbine Hall

The Turbine Hall at the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry (OMSI) was built in the 1920’s and originally served as a PGE Power Station named Station L. Though extremely popular with guests, this portion of the facility, now listed on the National Historic Registry, has become dated and its exhibits lack a clear thematic focus. Dangermond Keane partnered with the Felt Hat to reimagine the Turbine Hall and design a new experience focused on design thinking and problem solving. The project includes creating a phased execution strategy to roll-out the remodel over the next 5 years.
