Deaf / Hard of Hearing    

The installation is primarily sound based.

Model City Space is suitable for those hard of hearing of deaf, as it houses a primarily visual exhibition, activities and a documentary film with subtitles.

The soundscape will be BSL interpreted on 15 February, 10am-5pm – this is free to drop in and does not require booking. Transcripts of Model City soundscape will be available in Model City Space.

Visual Impairment  

The installation is primarily sound based. Large print of event handout is available from Model City Space and on request.

Special Effects  

This installation does NOT contain flashing lights which could trigger photosensitive epilepsy.


We expect King Edward Street to be busier than usual at peak times (lunch time, rush hour, weekends). If you or your child have any additional sensory needs, our Model City Space offers a relaxed hour every morning 10-11am. During this time we will limit amount of people in the space and make general public aware.

Ear defenders will also be available from the Model City Space.
