MuCEM: Museum of European and Mediterranean Civilizations

This is the first time that a museum has been devoted to the cultures of the Mediterranean: the Mucem is unique in that it retraces, analyses and sheds light on, in a single dynamic and a single place, the ancient foundations of this fertile cradle of civilization, as well as the tensions that have been a feature right up to the present day.

Museums + Heritage / Innovation Award 2015

Battle of Bannockburn by National Trust for Scotland, Historic Scotland & Bright White Ltd


The Battle of Bannockburn Visitor Centre represents a unique approach to battlefield interpretation. The proposition to visitors is to fight their own battle of Bannockburn, which they do via a 30-player battle simulator. This puts serious gaming at the centre of a world-class interpretation centre for the first time. No physical objects have survived from the battle, and as such the basis of the interpretation is the written historical record. The designers created a variety of innovative digital interactive presentations to tell the story.


Chris Walker is a founding director of Bright White Ltd. Chris has a passion for driving innovation in learning and museum interpretation. He has been lead designer on many international projects, and helped win awards for both innovation and recognition of excellence in heritage interpretation. Chris is also a founding director of Virtual Case Systems Ltd, and a founding member of the Guild of Media Arts in his home city of York, UK. The Guild is the first new guild in the city for 700 years.
