The Weapon Factory is an exhibition at the Hembrug area in Zaandam about the 100 years of history of this former military base. In December 2013 we were asked to develop an integral exhibition concept for one the buildings on this site. Within three months we have designed and realized the exhibition, including an interactive children’s route.
On the basis of the themes fabrication, testing and storage – which used to be the three main activities on this site -, the visitors are led through the history of a fabric that was strictly confidential to all civilians. Original Hembrug-products enhanced with text and short movies tell the story of the Weapon Factory and its’ staff.
