The planning of a museum, an exhibition or a heritage site requires multidisciplinary thinking and an approach that incorporates both spatial and time based qualities. Highlighting projects by the studio Duncan McCauley the presentation will give an insight into thoughts regarding narrative, sequential space and participation towards a meaningful and rewarding visitor experience. The projects presented will include among others the new visitor experience at Vischering Castle near Muenster in Germany and the exhibition Diana: Her Fashion Story at Kensington Palace, London.
