Earth in All Its Diversity

Our Dynamic Earth

Britain’s first Landmark Millennium Project, Our Dynamic Earth is located in a Michael Hopkins designed building at the end of Edinburgh’s Royal Mile. Displays tackle three fundamental scientific questions: How the world was made, How it works and What can go wrong.

Working with a team of scientific experts, Event conceived, designed and delivered the attraction as a magical journey through time and through the world’s ecosystems.

Our Dynamic Earth integrates resources from the BBC’s Natural History archives, the National Geographic archives and others to create a series of multimedia environments which explore the wonder of life and the effects of human species upon it.

A planetarium, complete with a commissioned symphonic soundtrack, forms a memorable finale.
