Museum & Exhibit Design

They have since evolved into thoughtfully designed experiences that take us on a journey across time and a multitude of subjects through thematic (and often interactive) galleries. Unlike other venues, museums have the unique privilege of showcasing some of the world's most cutting-edge architecture. Museum design is an area of immense potential: many museums are dogmatic and outdated, but here you will read of today's most inspiring examples.
