Evidence Design is honored to co-present the closing plenary session of the 2020 Building Museums Symposium with our colleagues at the Burke Museum. The session will focus on how an unwavering commitment to radical transparency led the Burke on a journey to build new facility that seamlessly integrates back-of-house activities with public experiential spaces. Featuring 13 visible labs and workrooms and a people-centered interpretive strategy, the Burke is a new kind of museum—and a whole new way to experience our world. We will explore how to define a clear and authentic vision for a project, how to communicate and stay true to that vision at critical junctures, keys to forming deep and collaborative relationships, and effective prototyping to verify, develop and refine the vision. We hope that others gain insights for their own projects, large or small.
In addition, March 2020 marks the ten-year anniversary of Science Storms at the Museum of Science and Industry Chicago. Evidence Design and the original MSI team will celebrate this groundbreaking exhibit’s enduring mission and beauty with special behind-the-scenes tours for Building Museum participants.
