We will elaborate on challenges and learnings on working on a large-scale mixed reality project at the newly established  COSA / Center of Science Activities in Graz, Austria. Over 2600 square feet of the science center are dedicated to a storytelling-based use of augmented reality for a young audience from twelve years up – the A(R)dventure. The game-based experience can be played simultaneously by eighteen visitors equipped with Microsoft Hololenses.


Our part was to develop the interactive exhibits, design the space around them and co-create the story for the A(R)dventure. That brought us to researching the restrictions and possibilities and their influence on the design process. The choice of light, material and interaction had a big impact on the immersion of the visitor and the blending of the digital assets in the museum space. The key challenges were the development and planning of a complex mixed reality experience and finding the tools for co-creation. We gained countless learnings in designing the design process itself and on collaborative workflows, as well as designing user experience in contrast to experiencing the user experience in prototypes and test runs.
