What would the ideal museum look like today?

Within the framework of the exhibition

A Model

Mudam Publics has invited an architect, Tom Bleser (specialist in 3D modelling), an architectural advisory group on ecosystems, Sensbox, and a graphic designer, Henri Schoetter, to lead an interdisciplinary workshop with three secondaire class groups in response to the exhibition A Model. This workshop will culminate in an exhibition at Mudam on the following theme: ‘What would the ideal museum look like today? Reimagining the museum as a living space, and not a mere site of presentation.’

The workshop with the architect will focus on architecture, the workshop with the urban planner/landscaper on the park surrounding Mudam, and the workshop with the graphic designer on the very concept of the museum.

Drawing on I.M. Pei’s architecture, we invite students to reconsider what the museum would be if it had been conceived in 2024. Architecture is constantly evolving and environmental and accessibility concerns are more important today than they were 30 years ago.

The students will explore the hidden face of Mudam, learn to read blueprints and familiarise themselves with the building and its surroundings. To reinvent Mudam according to their own vision of an ideal museum, the students will present their ideas with the aid of texts, illustrations, drawings, collages, maquettes, etc.
