Conversations | The Architecture of the Future Museum


Conversations | The Architecture of the Future Museum
Art Basel in Basel 2023, June 16

Museums are changing rapidly, along with their architecture. They seek to become more open, more community-centered, more experiential, more digital, more connected to nature – and architects are enrolled to help realize these ambitions. This conversation explores how architecture can lead the way in advancing and enhancing the museum. How can architecture give expression to the museum’s democratic and inclusive aspirations and accommodate new forms of digital creativity? What are the responsibilities of museum architecture when it comes to raising ecological awareness and the ongoing process of decolonizing collections? Can architecture help maintain museums at the center of our civic life?
After the event, András Szántó will hold a signing of his latest publication “Imagining the Future Museum: 21 Dialogues With Architects” (Hatje Cantz 2023) in the Hatje Cantz bookstore, Hall 2.
