Ridgeway lands US air museum

Ridgeway Associates is creating the graphics and exhibition spaces for The American Air Museum In Britain, currently under construction in Cambridgeshire.

The 460m2 museum is being created, with the help of funding from the National Lottery, to house the Imperial War Museum’s collection of US military aircraft (DW 4 August 1995).

Ridgeway Associates is working on the graphic interpretation of the planes at Duxford Airfield and is designing exhibitions based on World War II, the Gulf War and the Cold War.

Building design, visitor signage and furniture, including bins and caption stands, are by architectural practice Foster & Partners.

Although no definite decision has been made, the museum will probably carry on using the identity already created by Island Design, says Steve Woolford, head of exhibitions at the Imperial War Museum.

Scotland’s Museum of Flight has a new corporate identity designed by Shaw Marketing and Design in Edinburgh.

The consultancy has also created a publicity leaflet and guidebook to help boost the number of visitors to the museum, based in East Lothian.
