Design firms are going back to basics, with the goal of re-creating the museum as we know it in the digital age.
For the past four years, The Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History has been running a museum tour, but it’s going to close its doors in March 2018.
The move to a more “digital” approach is part of a growing trend of museums shifting away from traditional materials.
In March 2017, the Museum in London closed its doors after nearly four decades of running a series of exhibitions based on traditional materials like wood and bronze.
At the same time, museums in New York and Washington D.C. are planning to close in the coming years.
As we head into the new year, here are four reasons why we need a new museum to preserve and inspire us in the future.1.
Our digital past is not as strong as it once was.
The museum tours have always been the most important part of our experience, and their closure is just a further sign that the past is no longer our past.
This is particularly true of the Museum’s collection, which is the world’s largest, and its exhibitions have historically been a crucial part of the Smithsonian’s history.
We’re not alone in feeling this way, however.
The Smithsonian National Museum’s exhibition on the first women’s presidential election in 2016, for example, was the only one of its kind in the United States.
And the American Museum of Natural History’s exhibitions on plants, birds, and animals were the only ones in the world in the 1970s and 1980s.
In short, we can’t let museums that rely on materials that are outdated be the last to see what we’ve always known.
The museums we love should not just survive, but thrive.2.
Digital technology is here to stay.
As our digital environment expands, so too will our museum experience.
This means museums that focus on contemporary history are going to become the most prevalent venues in our society.
This has already happened in places like the British Museum, which has become a hub for museums and art.
And now we’re seeing it happening in places where museums used to only visit.
With this trend of digital-first, digital-only, and museum-centric exhibitions, we’re heading toward a future in which museums that are no longer focused on traditional design or art history will be more like museums that only focus on the current.3.
We should make a point of honoring the people behind our museum design.
We are a museum.
We are not some kind of faceless corporation.
It’s important to remember that when we design a museum, we are actually creating the museum, rather than just a collection of artifacts.
And, yes, some museums have already decided to go digital.
But that doesn’t mean museums shouldn’t still make an effort to preserve their collections.
This year, the National Museum in Washington D .
C. is planning to open a digital museum, while the American Institute of Architects will also be creating a new digital museum to celebrate the architect and architectural historian, Frank Lloyd Wright.
We have a responsibility to show our history through the stories and voices of our museum designers.
We also have a duty to honor their work and their contributions to the museum experience, whether it’s through digital design or an interactive experience.4.
We need to think outside the box.
For many of us, our most precious possessions, our family photos, our books, and even our art are just a few of the things we’ve kept with us for generations.
In the digital era, we have to consider what we’re going to put on our walls in the not-too-distant future.
Designers should look at how we might be able to recreate this heritage with our digital objects, and how we can create new, unique experiences that inspire us to look at the objects with a new perspective.
