Hamilton: The Exhibition

Location:Chicago, Illinois
Client: Hamilton Exhibition, LLC
 
Project description: Debuting on Chicago's Northerly Island, "Hamilton: The Exhibition" is a temporary attraction inspired by "Hamilton: An American Musical." This exhibition is an educational experience centered on the legacy of one of America's Founding Fathers, Alexander Hamilton. Featuring an audio tour narrated by Lin-Manuel Miranda, "The Exhibition" takes visitors deeper into the life and times of Alexander Hamilton while chronicling the American Revolution and creation of the United States of America. A dynamic and interactive mix of lighting, sound, multimedia, music, and historical artifacts, allows visitors to experience how it felt to write, fight, and live as Hamilton did.

A 34,000 SF aluminum framed tent structure, with an insulated metal panel faced and air-filled PVC roof, will enclose "The Exhibition" set. The design was led by David Korins Design, who also worked on the stage production set. The exhibit and structure have been designed to be disassembled for travel around the United States.

Walsh Construction engaged Antunovich Associates - as the Architect of Record - to coordinate the design of the foundation, set, and tent structure.
