This is the report about my placement in EUREKA!, the children's museum in Halifax, West Yorkshire, England. In the following pages, this report attempts to highligh a global view of a design project such as a children's waiting room in a hospital and on a wider scale, the work of an exhibition designer. The mission I was assigned to do was re-designing the children's waiting room in the local hospital, the Calderdale Children's Hospital. Different research topics have been investigated: designing spaces for kids as the waiting room must be designed for them, and taking into account the hospital as the waiting room would be located in the Accident and Emergency department. According to the research undertaken and to the brief that we had at our disposal, we created a sensitive and interactive waiting room where children can enjoy the space around them and develop their creative thinking. This project shows that Eureka! can be successful in applying their knowledge.
