President Obama officially opened the Edward M. Kennedy Institute in Boston last week. PKPR client ESI Design created the Institute’s interactive exhibits and visitor experience, which includes a program that allows up to 100 people to “play” Senators-in-Training in a full-scale recreation of the U.S. Senate Chamber.
The firm’s innovative work won praise from influential design outlets and columnists including Fast Company (”In This Museum, You Don’t Learn About Senators. You Are a Senator”), Quartz (”Ted Kennedy’s Institute Lets Visitors Play Senator For A Day”), and Slate (”Kennedy Institute Combines Cutting-Edge Tech With A Full-Scale Senate Replica”).
