Grand Award

Battle of Midway Experience, U.S.S. Midway Museum

San Diego, CA

Builder:

Swinerton Builders


Developer:

U.S.S. Midway Museum

Architect/Designer:

AVRP Studios

Photographer: John Muller / Kristen Peele Photography

Judges Statement:

This specialty space celebrates the sacrifice and lives of the young men who fought the 1942 Battle of Midway. Featuring a 100 seat multi-media

theatre and accompanying exhibits built on the hanger deck of the USS Midway.

The resulting “Experience” includes a holographic movie theater, 3 interactive exhibits, 20-foot-long events timeline, 2 life-size mannequins in authentic WWII attire,

and two suspended airplanes caught in the heat of battle.

Theater acoustic issues necessitated the creation of a “box within a box”. The interior theater “box” sits on a floating concrete floor atop sound isolators and is

also separated from the new exterior walls and existing deck above. This 18 foot high space with 16 inch walls houses a film screen, holographic equipment, multiple

projectors, special lighting, and stadium seating for multiple showings each day.

A stunning tribute and a job well done.
