Art Museums in Flanders

In parallel with a research project by Labo A, the students were asked to conceive mini-designs for a contemporary art museum in a medium-sized city. The project’s aim was to discover interesting ‘museum models’ by a design based examining of the display of art objects, the institutional functions and the architectural aspects of a museum.

The students proposed four design projects, each based upon another starting point: ‘the museum as background and context’, ‘the museum as a collection of rooms and cabinets’, ‘the museum as a library’ and ‘the museum as a course and an area’.
