Event description

Description

How do you design a high tech space that doesn’t date?

Explore the collision of arts and science. Science Gallery Melbourne is redesigning its museum with the ultimate digital fitout, inspired by hospitals, shopping centres and airports. Faced with the challenge of future-proofing the Gallery’s digital environment, Science Gallery Melbourne teamed up with the Microsoft Research Centre for Social Natural User Interfaces at the University of Melbourne and identified a range of considerations, such as maximising the lifespan of today’s technologies; designing for changing museum requirements and visitor expectations; and integrating technology in the architectural design of museum spaces. In this talk, Director of Science Gallery Melbourne Rose Hiscock and Digital Media Specialist Dr Niels Wouters will discuss the Gallery changes and chat future-proofing in a digital world.
