Abstract: This thesis is a study of developing a design process to enhance the experiences of cultural heritage in China, using the Western Xia Imperial Tombs Museum and Archaeological Site as a case history, in which the focus is on creating effective animated installations with content from China’s culture past and present. The goal is to design stories using animated installations that are built on scholarly historical research and that lead audiences to gain an immersive learning experience. The research focuses on three basic levels: animated installations, space perception, and key case studies on Chinese cultural heritage including the Western Xia Imperial Tombs museum design. The ambition of this research is to bring together several areas of study— Chinese heritage, landscape design, history, literature, modern technology and mass tourism—into a practical design process that provides effective ways to represent the past for useful meaning in the present and future. Using this new process, designers can analyse the content of a story, the scene design, the location of screens and projectors, the light, and the design and making of physical art works, to comprehensively approach the creation of immersive spaces to enhance the experiences of cultural heritage.
