Ursa International

Concept Plans


Concept Plans are defined as those early drawings, working directly with the client to conceive of a project from scratch. These projects sometimes go on to become Exhibit Design projects where other consultants are brought in and the project becomes more comprehensively designed. Ursa International was responsible for the projects listed below at their beginnings. Some have continued on and others sit patiently for funding or change in government! Some of those not built have project briefs under this section.
