Symposium: International Museum Design Symposium

From H-Museum:

Europe's biggest-ever museum design event launches with a unique one-day Symposium at the Science Museum's Dana Centre on Tuesday 14 October.

The Symposium
International in scope and with contributions from world leading architects, designers and senior museum professionals, the Symposium is the must-attend event to discover and debate the very best in museum design.

In the morning session you'll hear keynotes from opinion-forming museum directors with the right international experience to give compelling insights into global contemporary museum design.

And then in the afternoon you'll get further inspiration and fresh ideas from world-leading museum designers and architects from both North American and Continental Europe.

The International Museum Design Symposium is an exclusive opportunity for you to discover the latest developments and trends in the field of museum, gallery and heritage design.

The Festival
The Symposium is part of The Festival of Museum Design - a week-long celebration, exploration and examination of museum design from around the world.

Throughout the week we're planning a stimulating series of study days with key figures leading guided tours of world-class museum projects and design studios. Watch this space for further details of these events...

The Book
At the Symposium we're launching Museum Design 2009 - a ground-breaking new 356 page colour hardback book that provides a richly-illustrated guide to the latest in museum design.

As a delegate to the Symposium, you'll be able to attend the book launch, meet the authors and be among the first to see the book.
