Bahrain National Monument

The Bahrain National Monument celebrates the relationship between His Majesty King Hamad Bin Isa Al Khalifa and the people of Bahrain, and to honour the National Charter, the basis for Bahrain's path to the future.

Bahraini traditions, Bahrain’s present and future are all brought to life in this impressive museum using 57 interactives (40 touch screen based), 65 video monitors, 58 projectors, and audio throughout.

Uniquely, 95% of the video footage is high definition, some displayed in 5 major videoscapes up to 36m long. These videoscapes are on walls curved in two different dimensions with ceilings that can slope from 10 metres to 3.5 metres, and columns just a metre from the walls every 6 metres.

In interactives visitors use pearls harvested in Bahraini waters to design a necklace; drive a lap of Bahrain’s Formula 1 track; examine local animals projected onto their hands; and use a rotary encoder to sail a trading ship across a sea projected onto a table before making trading decisions using the encoder and ‘buttons’ projected onto the table; and more.

D J Willrich Ltd was commissioned by Beck Interiors as the Audio Visual Systems Integrator, working with Designers Ralph Appelbaum Associates, Project Managers Fraser Randall, Video Producers Home Run and Interactive Software Developers Newangle. DJW assisted in changing the design process significantly from the initial plans.
