Exhibit Fabrication + Installation

Angel Island State Park

The US Immigration Station on Angel Island in San Francisco Bay once served as a processing center for hundreds of thousands of immigrants between 1910 and 1940. Considered the “Ellis Island of the West,” this national landmark conveys its history through laser-etched granite monuments, a cast bronze and resin topographic model, interactive audio stations, illuminated graphics and walking path graphics. Pacific Studio coordinated with Daniel Quan Design and the State of California to fabricate and install an engaging set of interpretive exhibits and monuments that communicate the historic nature of the building and the importance of the surrounding area. We enjoyed the challenge of the remote island location, which required that exhibits, personnel and equipment for this installation be delivered via a landing craft. Our team took care to design and fabricate exhibits with materials durable enough to withstand the challenges of the marine environment while preserving the site’s historic integrity.
