Panellists reflect on how architecture can expand inclusivity, engage communities and create sustainable futures.
Museum architecture can be a fortress, or it can invite people in. Inspired design can invite diverse uses and users to museum campuses, and link social and ecological sustainability. Long concerned with protecting objects inside their buildings, some museums are looking outward to contemplate how they might view their natural surroundings as part of their collection and are striving to nurture and protect the larger ecosystem beyond their walls.
Based on chapters written for a recent book, four panellists reflect on how architecture can expand inclusivity, engage communities, and create sustainable futures.
Hosted by Dr Georgia Lindsay, Senior Lecturer in Architecture and Design at the University of Tasmania.
