In our museums knowledge is prompted by personal experimentation.
We participated in the creation of the first museum of technology in Latin America. Under the direction of Héctor Berra, along with the Lopatin Architectural Firm and operated by MUDE S.A., we designed all the exhibitions. The furniture, industrial design, art direction and graphics were executed by Exhibición Activa, illustrating two years of content research.
LEARN BY PLAYING
The development of the Interactive Center was the last stage of an ambitious project: the complete renovation of the Temaikén Biopark Aquarium. This included interactive games with Kinect sensors, touchscreen games, an interactive floor, a virtual submarine and 4 inmersive films. Their contents raise awareness of the conservation of seas and oceans.

TO SPACE AND BEYOND!
The Planetarium of the City of Buenos Aires commissioned Exhibición Activa to develop the Preliminary and Final Project for the Planetarium´s Interactive Museum. It is situated on the first floor of this emblematic building. The first 3 sectors of the exhibition were inaugurated in Abril of 2016 and 4 other areas were completed by July of the same year.

A TRIP THROUGH TIME
Together with Héctor Berra, the Lopatin Firm and MUDE S.A. management, we developed the Museo River focusing our work on the Art Direction and Design of the exhibitions. We placed particular emphasis on the façade; graphic design and architecture were linked in this unique Buenos Aires frontage. An emblematic “red ribbon” wraps around a ramp which connects 2 stories totaling 1800 square meters of museum exhibits.
THE HISTORY OF RIVERS, SEAS AND OCEANS
During the season of 2019, a special exhibition called “Life in the Water” took place at the Temaikén Aquarium. This exhibit deepened the understanding of the history of life in water, from pre-Cambrian times to present day. The aquarium exploratory was also customized in keeping with the new concept.
A HISTORY MUSEUM THAT INTERACTS!
A snaking cabinet containing models, pieces and interactive monitors cuts through a refunctionalized house and its collection.
Explora Salta is a new chapter in history museums that takes place in the heritage houses of Leguizamón and Arias Rengel in the city of Salta, Argentina.
HISTORICAL FILES IN A CORPORATE BUILDING
Disney Latam corporate management summoned us to implement the landing operations of a series of collectible items which arrived from Burbank, CA. Under the curatorship of Jeff Kurti, the Walt Disney historian and creator of the Disney family museum in San Francisco, we were able to carry out this fascinating project.
A NEOCLASSIC MUSEUM WHICH ENCOURAGES PARTICIPATION
We developed an interactive center inside a “Belle Époque” gazebo, as part of the new “Place for Birds” in the Temaikén Biopark. We decided to continue with the style of furniture used in the neoclassic museums, bearing in mind that the 21st century exhibits are interactive. The result is an example of great aesthetic value with significant participatory content.
WE CAN ADD VALUE TO HERITAGE SITES
As part of a private automobile collection, the assignment was to replicate
Henry Ford ́s first workshop on Bagley Ave., Detroit.
exhibiciónactiva® designed and reproduced every single item from machines to furniture.
The collector also wanted to reproduce an image of Henry Ford while working on the “Quadricycle”, the first car designed by young Henry Ford.
Jaime Salmon, a Vancouver based hyper- realistic artist, was commissioned by exhibiciónactiva® to create the latex sculpture.
This exhibition is part of the expansion, both spatial and thematic, of the Temaikén Biopark aquarium. Six tanks with diverse morphologies, were designed and incorporated. Each one has interactive digital signage, which needs to be seen through the tank in order to respond to the different trivia and questionnaires proposed.
Fundación Patagonia Natural and Wildlife Conservation Society summoned us to develop the interior design of Punto Tombo´s Interpretation Center, in Patagonia Argentina. The project took shape in New York, at the WCS Headquarters, located in the Bronx Zoo, together with José Pablo Mehaudy, an architect from the province of Chubut and the WCS exhibition team.
CAREFUL! SHARKS ON THE LIKE!
We remodeled the Tecnópolis Argentine Aquarium: we put together a new comprehensive project of the 16 Aquarium enclosures, aligning each habitat with its corresponding species. Then we direct the team of set designers to achieve the desired results. Finally, an app was developed to implement visits with augmented reality.
The Lost City
S. Marta, Colombia
WELCOME TO THE CENTER OF THE UNIVERSE
We competed in an international open bid in Colombia , together with Proyecciones Digitales S.A., a technological integration company.
Our proposal won against 6 other competitors and features an Interpretation Center for visitors to the Sierra Nevada and the Lost City of the Tayronas.
In 2006 the Temaikén management convened us to renovate the entrance and exit of the 360º movie theater.
It was transformed into an interpretation center where all the conservation projects that Temaikén Foundation carries out together with other NGOs are exhibited with images and texts.
FROM THE ANDES
TO THE ATLANTIC
An orographic outline represents the landscape of the Patagonian terrain, divided longitudinally from the Andes Mountains to the Argentine Sea. Intercepted by 12 monitors and 12 touchscreen stations, this set makes up the narrative axis of this site. Each monitor reproduces an interactive explanation on the outstanding species of the area in question.

WATER IN ALL ITS FORMS
For the inauguration of the Temaikén Biopark , we developed the first interpretation center for the Aquarium. Dominated by a large mural depicting the water cycle, its areas focus on biodiversity, research and pollution.
There are areas with colorful notes which explain interactively how Southern Right Whales migrate o how a dolphin sonar works.
