In 2013, Barrie Projects was engaged to develop a feasibility study for a new U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Museum. The results of the study were favorable and since then Barrie Projects has worked on all aspects of the Museum’s development including the selection of architects, exhibit designers, and AV producers, as well as crafting the Museum’s narrative arc with the active participation of the Olympic and Paralympic communities – athletes, coaches, trainers, historians and other experts. In partnership with the U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Committee Archives, Barrie Projects identified key stories, images and artifacts — and then reached out to hundreds of athletes and families to secure special items for the exhibits.
Barrie Projects has created museums dedicated to the history of rock ‘n’ roll, international spying, and organized crime; special exhibits; and cultural master plans and visions for cities and universities.
