How familiar are you with the complexities of corn’s lifecycle? If you work in agriculture, it’s second nature. But if you don’t, you probably haven’t thought about it before.
Our clients at AgroLiquid know corn growth stages like the back of their hands. They manufacture fertilizers for every stage of plant growth. And so they wanted their museum, the IQhub, to help people understand the science and precision behind fertilizers.
We built a circular indoor theater for AgroLiquid to show videos explaining fertilizers and how they benefit plants. Running around the top of the theater’s walls, we installed a block designed to look like soil. And all around that ring is a series of artificial cornstalks showing each stage in corn’s lifecycle.
Colored fiber-optic lights in the soil beneath each plant represent the particular nutrients required at each stage. The detailed corn replicas show the unique characteristics of the corn leaves and stalks as the plant ages from a seedling to a mature plant.
