Back in August 2015, Ian James (our Managing Director) took a call from an old colleague he had worked with at Action Aid and the BBC. Andrew had recently moved to Geneva for a new role with the United Nations at the Palais des Nations and need to produce an exhibition space for the 70th Anniversary Open Day at the United Nations.
The space needed to explain how the Strategic Heritage Plan (SHP) would help to preserve the building while creating a safer, more modern location, accessible to people with disabilities.
Andrew asked if he would be interested in pitching for the design work and to consult on the project. It didn’t take long to for him to say yes and after a rigorous process, he won the pitch.
A few weeks later he flew out to Geneva to take the brief and get first-hand knowledge of the SHP’s proposal, the objectives they had to achieve and what the plan meant to the staff, delegates and the visitors to the Palais.
