OVERVIEW:
This symposium is for architects, museum leaders, planners, project
managers, technical experts, and all those who plan or implement new
construction, renovation, or expansion projects for museums. Whether
your institution is a small historic site under renovation, a
mid-sized art museum planning an expansion, or a large children’s
museum building a new facility, this symposium will provide you the
opportunity to:

Better understand the process of planning, implementing, and surviving
new construction, renovation, or expansion projects
Examine case studies, current trends, topical issues, and specific
projects related to building projects across a broad range of museum
sizes and scales, budgets, scope of building projects, diversity of
disciplines, and collecting vs. non-collections-holding institutions
Actively discuss museum building projects with other museum
professionals, architects, planners, project managers, and technical
experts to better inform the process of building
Access resources for architectural firms, consultants, museum
projects, and museum leaders through the Building Museums Resource
Guide
The symposium is organized under three inter-related themes: Vision,
Implementation, and Sustainability (or Life after Opening) . The
content of each day will reflect these themes across a broad range of
museum sizes and scales, budgets, scope of building projects,
disciplines, and collecting vs. non-collecting institutions.
