In 2018, SKOLNICK created concept designs for the future Shanghai Planetarium. Envisioned as the world’s largest astronomical museum, the Shanghai Planetarium will immerse visitors in a journey from planet Earth across the cosmos and through the history of human exploration to understand the scope and scale of our universe.
Within the gallery dedicated to exploration, the River of Stars exhibit transports visitors back in time to discover key moments that changed the course of astronomy and shaped our understanding of the universe. The playful exhibit, Planet Paradise, introduces the youngest visitors to basic astronomy concepts and sparks their curiosity about space.
This project was developed in collaboration with Xenario, Inc.
