Perlan Museum Featured in Planetarian

Our Reykjavik project, the Perlan Museum, was featured in the June issue of Planetarian. The publication is a subset of the IPS (International Planetarium Society), the largest organization of planetarium professionals in the world. The article goes in depth into the process required to make a world-class museum and planetarium and our contribution to such an impressive project. Our own Ben Metzger was interviewed for the article:

“Working with the Perlan team was a fantastic experience. Xibitz is a unique hybrid; able to both build and prove out designs, and a challenge like this really let us flex our muscles. Our biggest test/obstacle was the distance we had to deal with because everything was built in our facility in Grand Rapids, Michigan, then shipped across the Atlantic. But because of our people and the team we worked with, we were able to achieve excellent results.”
