Our team had the pleasure of traveling to Shiloh, Tennessee to meet with the staff at Shiloh National Military Park as a first step in planning this project.

We will be designing, building and fabricating new exhibits for the visitor center that will provide engaging, accessible interpretation based on the current scholarship. Topics covered in the exhibit space include the slavery debate around the start of the Civil War, the Battle of Shiloh, and even pre-historic events in the area.

Team Formations is thrilled to have the opportunity to work on this exciting new project bringing history to life!

This project’s design drew inspiration from the community it serves and the people that serve it—featuring touchscreen media programs that highlight the Refuge’s volunteers, a dimensional map of Philadelphia, incorporating the city’s skyline into design elements, and numerous interactive exhibits to tell the story of America’s First Urban Wildlife Refuge. 

Exhibits honored the unique relationship between nature and the sprawling metropolis visible from the Refuge, epitomized by the 12-foot-tall Great Blue Heron sculpture made of recyclable materials often found littered in the marsh—serving as a reminder that humans and wildlife are interconnected.
