Design Considerations

Lego is interactive, and intricate. So these displays are designed to draw the eye, and give it lots to look at. As always, we put little visual gags into our scenes, as you can see to the right.

We wanted to make sure we were giving something for everyone, which is why we have four different themes represented. KCCUSA emphasized that they're an interactive museum so we made sure that most of the displays had "features"... push a button and something happens.

The Cases

KCCUSA has a number of freestanding display cases. The cases are silver to fit with the industrial theming at KCCUSA. After discussion, we decided to use vertical cases for the space and underwater scenes and horizontal ones for the castle and town scenes. The vertical cases are visible from all 4 sides, while the horizontal ones are lit from the top and only visible from the front.

To provide motion control, large 110V pushbuttons were mounted on the case fronts. Each pushbutton controls the power to a LEGO®; 9V train controller set to the appropriate speed which in turn supplies low voltage to a LEGO motor embedded in the model that actually operates the feature.
