A successful heritage centre must appeal to and attract a wide and inclusive visitor demographic yet at the same time be wholly sympathetic to the theme and location of the centre. Complex educational objectives often sit alongside tough commercial targets. To find an effective design solution, the JANVS | VIDAR team challenges the familiar and often simplified approach to heritage centre design by addressing the complex relationship between four sets of variables - the personal characteristics of the visitor, their prior knowledge of the subject, their perception of the subject in relation to their own experiences, and the physical and cultural attributes of the site.
