Architecture Museums and Digital Design Media
A research theme in the Cultural Heritage Mediascapes project that investigates the collection, preservation and exhibition of digital architectural materials.
The archives of architectural firms, including models and drawings, are an important source of cultural heritage, providing insight into design processes and architectural history. However, digital design media produced in architectural practice pose unique challenges to collecting, preserving, and exhibition practices in museums.
This theme studies the challenges of producing, collecting, preserving and exhibiting digital design media in ways that deepen experts' and visitors' experiences and knowledge of architecture.
