Department of Culture and Tourism, Abu Dhabi

This international exhibition explores the history of Hajj from ancient history to modern day

Exhibition Design, Graphic Design

This exhibition explores the history of Hajj from the depths of ancient history to modern day, through a range of spectacular objects and media sourced from across the globe.

The exhibition was divided into distinct sections, connected by glowing thresholds, allowing people to reflect for a moment before embarking on the next part of the journey. Spaces alternated from being light to fully immersive, providing an emotional, varied journey.

At the heart of the exhibition stood a Mahmal, around which we created a circular space with projected historic footage of a Mahmal on its journey to Mecca – immersing the visitor in the journey of Hajj.
