There’s Nothing Standard About UJMN's New Exhibit
How do you measure and set standards for things as intangible as light, or as strong as structural steel for skyscrapers? This is the charge of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), the products and services of which are used in the design of the smart power grid, satellites, lasers, atomic clocks, bulletproof vests, homes, factories, spacecraft, and cyber-security systems. UJMN Architects + Designers is pleased to announce that NIST has commissioned the firm to design exhibits for NIST’s facilities in Gaithersburg, MD, and Boulder, CO. The intricate exhibit structure will integrate glass panels, glass beams, metal posts, and lighting. Historic tools, machinery, test apparatus, videos, interviews, and photos will highlight the extraordinary contributions NIST has made over the past 110 years to the development of the U.S. as the world leader in science, technology, and engineering.
