Hamilton: The Exhibition

Location:Chicago, Illinois
Client: Hamilton Exhibiton, LLC
 
Project description: Hamilton: The Exhibition is a temporary attraction that will debut on Chicago’s Northerly Island. The exhibition will be an educational experience inspired by “Hamilton: An American Musical” and centered on the legacy of one of America's Founding Fathers,  Alexander Hamilton.  The experience will feature an audio tour narrated by Lin-Manuel Miranda and will take visitors deeper into the life and times of Alexander Hamilton while chronicling the American Revolution and creation of the United States of America. With a dynamic and interactive mix of lighting, sound, multimedia, music and historical artifacts, the visitor will experience how it felt to write the way Hamilton wrote, fight the way Hamilton fought, and live the way Hamilton lived.

A 34,000 SF aluminum framed tent structure, with insulated metal panel faced and air-filled PVC roof will enclose the exhibition set designed by David Korins Design, who also worked on the stage production set. The exhibit and structure has 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.

The exposition is set to open in April of 2019 and will remain in Chicago through the Summer before being dismantled for reconstruction in the next city on the tour.
