I had a look at images of exhibitions online, but specifically for entrances to exhibitions to find examples of both soft and hard entrances. I have annotated two images for both categories, I would say that all of the hard entrances are enhanced by the design of their entrances, inviting the visitor inside to find out more, but I feel that the soft entrances are also very effective, because of the nature of the exhibition I don’t feel they need an ‘ta dah!’ entrance, the information and objects talk for themselves, but each entrance still leaves me intrigued by the content.
