The Big Idea was a thousand years supported, intelligent exhibition hall in Irvine in North Ayrshire, Scotland.
The exhibition hall, based on the site of Alfred Nobel's explosive factory,was dedicated to development and creators. Scottish innovators highlighted incorporate John Napier, William Murdock, Alexander Fleming and John Logie Baird.
At the point when the exhibition hall opened in 2000, there were 120,000 guests, yet in 2001, there were just 50,000. In 2003, the display focus shut as a result of low guest numbers. The exhibition hall building is still there, with a turf-secured rooftop and worked to take after a goliath sand ridge, yet its future is as yet undecided.
There is a period container covered under the exhibition hall. The footbridge, called the 'Scaffold of Scottish Inventions', can open to enable boats to go through and, starting at 2016, stays in the vacant position.
