Reimagining Museums for Climate Action
Registration Deadline: July 31, 2020, Submission Deadline: September 15, 2020
This competition invites to reflect on new approaches to the design, organization and experience of museums that can amplify and accelerate climate action in diverse contexts and on diverse scales. While thousands of museums around the world remain closed, new forms of engagement and experimentation have emerged to rethink the relationship between museums and society. 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.
