Reimagining Museums for Climate Action
Registration Deadline: July 31, 2020, Submission Deadline: September 15, 2020

This competition seeks to generate design and concept proposals that are radically different from the "traditional" museum, or that explore new ways for traditional museums to function. These museums of the future could thus incorporate a multitude of ways in which communities around the world have responded to COVID-19 and inspire radical new forms of action to address the climate and ecological emergency.
