Commercial survival has encouraged museum designers to look to brand experiences or even hotel design whilst theatre designers are happily moving in the other direction to create blockbuster exhibitions.
One major national museum thinks that their important exhibition design programmes is best left in the hands of architects.
The change in creative roles is reflected in emerging academic agendas with Central St Martins and the RCA feeding the market and the drive for diversification.

Speaker: Pippa Nissen Pippa Nissen describes how her recent exhibition work has been influenced by her theatre and architecture background and how it has come together in the design of narrative spaces.She particularly enjoys collaborating with other artists as part of the design process.Her presentation will be illustrated by the work she has done for the British Council, Southbank Centre, Design Museum London, the V&A, Aldeburgh Festival, Imperial War Museum, and the V&A Museum of Childhood.Speaker: Peter Karn Peter Karn will discuss design solutions that “cross the line” or are “indefinable”.They often and create interesting and successful results, which are diverse and are engaging experiences for visitors. The answer is none of these but they take influences and techniques from all to create something bespoke and unique that works for the client, audience and brief.However they can be tricky to sell as concepts to clients as they are perhaps deemed experimental and are hard to benchmark against other experiences. This collaborative approach allows ideas to be challenged in more diverse ways as teams are made up of creatives and experts from a variety of different disciplines.
