'Dinosaurs of the Gobi Desert'
Natural History Museum, London, 1997
This exhibition displayed dinosaur fossils from the Gobi Desert in Mongolia in the UK for the first time. We suggested the red sandstone ‘Flaming Cliffs’ with orange angled planes. Thirty tons of jagged blue-grey waste slate, placed upright on the gallery floor, created an arid terrain. Long showcases holding the smaller specimens were filled with sand and were designed as sections through an undulating desert landscape, with fossils discovered in rectilinear excavations.
