Engaging Audiences Through Holistic Design
IMEG works with owners and leading architects to create arts and cultural spaces that engage audiences and patrons. We take a holistic approach that equips us to fuse architectural value with engineering design as well as acoustic, lighting, audio-visual and security quality. IMEG’s cultural design specialists consider each element of a design as part of a cohesive whole to ensure the goals are achieved for an exhibit or building’s all-round performance. We utilize our creativity to design innovative systems that offer a fine balance between functionality, sustainability, maintainability, and adaptability for the future.
