Museums Then & Now brings together two architects – William Smart (Founder, Smart Design Studio) and Graeme Dix (Principal, Johnson Pilton Walker) – to discuss a variety of design perspectives shaping the contemporary evolution of this complex building type. The very notion of a museum is already concerned with physicality: the object which contains other objects. In more recent times, however, the notion of a museum has arguably been equally concerned with experience: questions of testimony, entertainment and provocation which underpin audience satisfaction. The conversation will be moderated by author, curator, cultural producer and SCCI Global Emissary, Dolla Merrillees as part of this weekend’s University of Newcastle X SCCI Architecture Hub events.
