summary

The Museum of the Aleutians exhibits tell the story of the impact of geology, biology, and cultural change on the Unangan people over the centuries, and their creative and life-affirming responses to these changes. It has areas allowing changeability and visitor input. The team worked with stakeholders from the City of Dutch Harbor, the museum, and the Aleutian Corporation. Challenges in this project were a 2 year funding cycle from design to fabrication and the distance from the mainland. The Museum, Alchemy and ACME teamed to make this a success for the community in Unakaska and beyond.
