The Bezos Center for Innovation at Seattle’s Museum of History and Industry tells a story of science, design, and technology through a sense of place. A 360-degree timeline immerses visitors in a history of Northwest innovation, while a 9-foot-high graphic novel depicts stories of Seattle’s global pioneers including Boeing, Starbucks, and Amazon. Throughout, the exhibition invites visitors to contribute their own opinions, ideas and personal stories, asking: “Who inspires you?” and “What problems need solving now?” These ongoing contributions and a rotating “What’s Next?” exhibit remind visitors that the best ideas are still to come.

“The multitude of approaches designed to tell the story [of innovation] are themselves seamless with the content. It is a brilliant and engaging execution.”

— Paul Roelofs, juror, Core77 Awards
