The Orange County Water District manages the water supply in Orange County though a thoughtful and comprehensive operation that is among the most sophisticated in the world. LR/LA was tasked to prove their expertise in a visitors' center. Instead of starting by trying to explain the complex science of water management, we first proposed (what appeared to be) simple questions to visitors, like " Where does Orange Counties' water come from?" and "Is water a manufactured product?". These simple questions became windows to the essential deep science as well make OCWD look like the experts they are.
OCWD's story is brought to life through three-dimensional layering of content, digital media presentations and hands-on interactive. The presentation is intended to serves a "thee-dimensional powerpoint presentation" for the staff that leads tours to orient visitors to the "big picture" before walking through the water processing plant.
This project was developed with Cinnabar and Discovery Cube.
