Museum Futures Group

Aims: To investigate the museum as a multi-functional institution using theoretical approaches and empirical research. To focus on the museum as site of collective memory, education, entertainment and agent of social change and urban regeneration. To facilitate long term partnerships/short term collaborations between HE establishments, museums/galleries, and commercial institutions. To offer consultancy services with student involvement in order to deliver collections/archives to new audiences through innovative curatorial/spatial practices and interventions. To involve community groups in processes of curation and provision of alternative sites for display of local narratives. To publish academic/journalistic articles, deliver conference papers and make public documentation of ongoing collaborative projects through the group website. To create opportunities for exchange of ideas between museum, HE and commercial sectors through networking events and symposia. Photography by Alberta Torres - [email protected]

Mission: The Museum Futures Group interrogates the museum as institution and unlocks its potential in terms of cross-sector partnerships and innovative curatorial practices/interventions.

BA (Hons) Interior Design - year 2 students.
Redesign of LCC Gallery Project.

The brief of this project was to redesign the LCC Gallery space, facilitating accessibility for external users and including amenities and technical elements such as temperature and humidity control.

The winning proposal for the curation of the exhibition space was designed by Richard Ready. The interior design students worked together to build and install the exhibition elements from scratch.

Work exhibited at the Museum Futures: Exploring Partnerships & Public Engagement exhibition at London College of Communication from 28.03- 30.03.2011.

BA (Hons) Graphic Product Innovation and BA (Hons) Surface Design year 2 students.
Pop-up Sustainable Installation Project.

Students from both courses worked together in groups to produce environmental design as a ‘pop up installation’ in selected areas of ‘dead space’ around the college building. The pieces were inspired by visits to environments or experience outside the college, and aimed to recreate something of these external starting point by taking into consideration the way in which people would react or engage with the work . The areas visited were Columbia Road Flower Market, its surrounding retail outlets and the nearby Geffrye Museum in Hackney Road.

The materials used in the pieces were wholly sustainable, using recycled goods, or gave consideration to the protection of natural resources by reducing consumption of energy and materials. The installation should be temporary and could be moved and exhibited elsewhere as necessary.

Work exhibited at the Museum Futures: Exploring Partnerships & Public Engagement exhibition at London College of Communication from 28.03- 30.03.2011.

FDA Interior Design - London Wetlands Centre Project

A project to re-design Headley bird hide and its interior at the London Wetlands Centre, while focusing on issues of education & interaction, sustainability & environmental conservation.

Thes students worked through three phases to complete the project.
PHASE 1: The students fully documented and explored the existing site at London Wetlands Centre, researched issues around the site.
PHASE 2: Taking into consideration the findings from phase 1 the students worked independently to develop structural forms and design philosophies.
PHASE 3: The students considered spatial relationships, the internal functionality of the bird hide to develop CAD designs and models for their proposals.

Work exhibited at the Museum Futures: Exploring Partnerships & Public Engagement exhibition at London College of Communication from 28.03- 30.03.2011.
