NAVAJO POTTERY EXHIBIT & DESIGN MANUAL

Design Excellence, Fall 2013

The Native American Navajo pottery & culture exhibit showcases history, pottery, and lifestyle of the Native American people of the southwestern United States. This exhibit was carefully designed for Red Square, located within the Design School north building at Arizona State University in Tempe, Arizona. The manual was created as a reference guide to construct the exhibit. Each component is diagramed and dimensioned to achieve an ideal representation of Navajo pottery & culture.

Drawing from references of Navajo history, culture and architecture, the space is designed to mimic a traditional Hogan structure. The entire exhibit is plated with cedar plank panels for a visual aesthetic quality, but also to entice the olfactory sense. The exterior wall panels each contain unique artifacts and video touch-screens that relate to pottery history, artistry and functionality. The central space has video projections that display high impact imagery and video scenes of Navajo pottery and culture.
