Architecture 310 and IQSCM: A Collaboration

Architecture 310 and IQSCM: A Collaboration

Students in Professor David Newton’s Fall, 2018 junior design studio considered the role of museums in the 21st century. Are they community centers? Cathedrals for contemplation and communion with objects? What are the benefits—and challenges—of collections-based institutions? What role should technology play in the museum experience?

Students explored these questions through the design of a hypothetical addition to the IQSCM, investigating the generative possibilities of rule-based systems and virtual reality to create rich museum atmospheres. Each project provides a vision of a possible future, prompting us to creatively daydream about what a museum can be.
