Materials Guide

This guide was created to help exhibit designers and builders choose materials that are better for the environment, for visitors and workers, and make economic sense.
 
Here are a few questions you might consider when choosing materials:
  • How durable is it?
  • What’s the upstream environmental impact?
  • How safe is it for visitors and workers to interact with?
  • Can we dispose of it responsibly when we’re done with it?
  • How much does it cost?
  • Is there a way to support local/women and minority owned vendors?
