The BMGF Visitor Center is located in Seattle adjacent to the foundation’s campus. Its purpose is to explain the foundation’s work to the public. The gallery includes several tangible interactives as well as exhibits where users can add their own content. Where We Work has a beautifully crafted wooden globe. As you turn the physical globe, the map globe on the six monitors turns with it. Short news segments from the current area display on the map and a twitter feed display beneath it. The staff can update the news headlines live from a web interface.
