Brief

Met Studio designers went roving across Taiwan as part of the consultancy’s latest work for the country’s National Museum of Science. Two galleries – part of Met’s ongoing work at the museum – have now been completed. The first gallery is called Taiwan’s Ecosystem. It involved Met’s designers going to all the regions featured in the gallery and taking moulds of botanical specimens and rocks in-situ to recreate conditions of Taiwanese flora and fauna (pictured). The second gallery features a display of ‘striking and unusual minerals’, says a Met spokeswoman. The focal point of the Minerals Gallery is a 3m-high glass pyramid with a polished granite base which can be viewed from above. ‘Spectacular pieces of stalagmite, petrified wood and gypsum in contorted forms are displayed within the pyramid,’ says the spokeswoman.
