It takes an extraordinary person to risk their own life to further improve all of man kind. The astronauts of our nation, whether they have paid the ultimate sacrifice or just exemplified extreme instances of bravery, deserve to be honored with unwavering respect. Now at Kennedy Space Center's Heroes & Legends exhibit they can. BRPH was honored to provide design-build, architectural, engineering, and preconstruction & construction management services for the remembrance hall. To complete the project, BRPH repurposed a portion of the existing Early Exploration building and created a unique and prominent addition for the new visitor attractions paying tribute to historic space exploration.
The creation of Heroes & Legends meant the 25-year-old Hall of Fame was moved from its previous location to the Visitor Complex’s main campus. With this move, the astronauts in our nation's space program can receive the recognition they truly deserve. Heroes & Legends will provide an immersive storytelling experience about those who first dared to bravely explore humanity’s greatest frontier: Space.
BRPH worked to create an experience that will welcome guests with inspirational, uplifting architectural facades featuring an image of Mercury astronauts, then travel forward to the cylindrical “Discovery Bay” room. The next floor has 10 exhibit modules that simulate holograms, augmented reality and other imaginative display methods showing off artifacts and memorabilia. Arotunda-like space adds to the beauty of this exhibit and introduces the new US Astronaut Hall of Fame, featuring a media loop montage and interactive kiosk at the center highlighting the most recent inductees.When creating this new rememberance hall, BRPH strived to take "one small step for man, but a giant leap for mainkind" in properly remembering the Heroes & Legends of America's Space Program.
