UNIVERSITY COLLEGE, LONDON
The Octagon Gallery is a new exhibition space for staff, students and visitors to University College London. It displays the university’s extensive collections and highlights its research. In 2011, the space went through a major overhaul. The redevelopment gave it more light and a new interior. The venue now features new display cases, animations and interactive screens.
All four ‘Alexandria’ display cases are equipped with individual lighting and active humidity control systems. Screens underneath the showcases can be converted from backlit passive label rails into touch screens allowing to actively go through different layers of content.
