Zach Riddley Reveals Small Details on the New EPCOT Transformation

From exterior colors to interior ceilings – our design choices are both functional and immersive. We select materials, assemblies and patterns with purpose and aesthetics in mind – particularly in a park like EPCOT. Details and finishing – these touches of design where finish and consistency come together are part of our storytelling aesthetic.
For our transformation of the previous CommuniCore structures, our team wanted to bring rhythm and warmth to the ceiling. We selected a prefabricated metal system finished with a wood texture to bring as much warmth from natural finishes as practical. You can see a few of our samples and mock-ups of the details in photos here.
We chose a “woven” texture of interlocking panels that is repeated in each of the bays formed by our new structural ribs, given the impression of subtle movement like waves on the ocean. This ceiling design extends for the full width of the new Creations Shop, including into the adjacent Club Cool space, to give an airy, continuous feel to the space.
The attention that goes into every detail of the parks always amazes me. The new, organic elements are coming into play, while still keeping the original concept of Epcot center. I am so excited to see all of it come together!
