Ah-Tah-Thi-Ki Museum — In Progress
The Ah-Tah-Thi-Ki Museum is located in South Florida, in the heart of the Seminole Tribe’s of Florida’s Big Cypress Reservation. Studio Tectonic is currently providing exhibition design and content development. We are helping to re-envision the museum and broaden the storyline to encompass the Tribe’s entire history, from ancient times to today.
We are carefully collaborating with the community in order to understand the Tribe’s vision of its own story, so that we can share it in a way that expresses that vision fully and accurately. The exhibits will be interpreted by the Seminoles themselves: their voices telling their stories. While the institution draws visitors from around the world, the primary audience is the Tribe itself. The Museum serves as a repository for the Tribe’s traditions and its visions for the future.
Throughout its more than 7,000 square feet of renovated space, the Museum’s new design includes many forms of interactivity. Learning will take place at media-based and hands-on stations, and in deeply immersive theatrical spaces. Artifacts and photographs will play a prominent role in conveying the Tribe’s long history. Exhibits will also use storytelling and inter-generational sharing as key methods.
