Design Charette

What is a charette? I sure don't know, but it is basically a fancy word for meeting, which is what I have been calling it. On Friday, August 18 the staff of the Dr Pepper Museum met with the creative team from Museum Scapes, which is a Dallas-based design firm, to discuss ideas for the Foots Clements Free Enterprise exhibit that will be taking the place of the Beverage World Hall of Fame on the 3rd floor. Museum Scapes was chosen from among several firms, and we have been working with them on ways to make the 3rd floor a more exciting place, while still teaching about the free enterprise system. The meeting was a success, and many amazing ideas were formulated. It was also a great experience for the design team because they had never seen the space before, so it was really their chance to get a feel for what they had to work with. They were all very recpetive to both the professional ideas about the exhibits, and the personal ideas about how Foots would want the free enterprise system taught. This is just one of the many exciting exhibits that will be going up in the near future, so be on the lookout for new stuff at the DPM!! For now, check out the charette pics below for a sneak peak into the think tank that was the 18th...
