FCBStudios Hosts...Designing a truly 21st Century museumFCBStudios Hosts...Designing a truly 21st Century museum
Join Moira Gemmill, Director of Design, Exhibitions & FuturePlan at the Victoria and Albert Museum for a breakfast event at FCBStudios London office organised by Archiboo.
The V&A now faces one of the biggest challenges in its 162-year history, the building of a new museum in Stratford east London, part of the Olympicopolis development announced this summer and the transition from a single to multiple venues, in central London, east London and Scotland. While the V&A’s plans will enable more of its permanent collection to be displayed, how does the museum create differentiation between venues whilst maintaining a singular vision?
Moira will explain how she sees the future of museums in a world of rapid change, why the V&A has adopted ‘rapid response collecting’ and finally the role of architecture, and how she believes the message begins with the building.
