Exploration Outpost: Kennecott
2018 - Finalist in Walt Disney Imagineering Imaginations Design Competition - Team Project
Choose an actual abandoned or “ghost town” from anywhere in the world and re-vitalize it!
It might be as a working town, a historical landmark, a living museum, a themed experience, or whatever else you can dream up. Consider historical value and respect for the traditions and communities of the original and surrounding areas.
You can integrate the entire town, or carefully selected sections that best serve your idea and the location. Be mindful of any environmental impact that your proposal may have. What technological advancements will be necessary to not only develop your idea, but to engage guests to your new creation both in person, and before, during and after a visit? How will your idea appeal to families? In what ways will it be accessible to as diverse an audience as possible? Is there a social service component to your creation that will be of value to the local community or beyond?
Please do not use Disney IP (Intellectual Property) in any part of your proposal.
This deck is the initial submission my team partner, Noah Sunday-Lefkowitz, and I submitted to Walt Disney Imagineering in November of 2017. I contributed as the team leader, researcher, and artist.
The project was conceived by the Muhlenberg College Team and created for the 2018 Walt Disney Imagineering’s Imaginations Design Competition. This project is the sole property of Walt Disney Imagineering and all rights to use these ideas are exclusive to Walt Disney Imagineering. The competition is a way for students and recent graduates to showcase their talents and for Walt Disney Imagineering to identify new talent.
