2018 marked the bicentenary of the Institution of Civil Engineers. To celebrate this milestone, 301 Design was commissioned to create a major, year-long exhibition to showcase some of the world's most amazing and inspiring engineering projects.

Divided into three zones; Connected Communities, Environmental Impact and Smart Infrastructure, the exhibition allowed engineers, students of all ages and the general public to explore these key areas of civil engineering, with projects and notable engineering ‘superheroes’ featured throughout.

This was our third and largest exhibition project to be held at the ICE’s headquarters in London and included around 200 graphics, along with videos and interactive screens, plus a media cube with a large screen and seating, presenting further videos.

The exhibition was a huge success and was awarded Visit England’s ‘Best Told Story 2018’.

Telling the story

The 301 team were asked to tell the story of the past, present and future of civil engineering across the world and the engineering superheroes who make these a reality.

Researched and developed

It was a fascinating project for 301 to investigate engineering history, examine the fundamental challenges engineers face, and display enticing stories of the people and projects.

Royal approval

Our creative director, David Boxall, had the honour of discussing the design and production of the exhibition with HRH The Princess Royal when she visited the ICE in September 2018.

“Thanks to 301 for all your work on the exhibition. We are delighted with the positive feedback we have already received.”

Debra Francis, Institution of Civil Engineers
