Case Study

The State Gallery of Lower Austria opens as a new museum in May 2019. The landmark building-by marte.marte architects–has inspired visions and sparked discussions since construction has started. To address these subjects the museum established a forum of dialog.

As a result the participatory project MyMuseum complements the opening. People were invited to share their visions/ideas of the new museum. The State Gallery reached out to meet them in their environment (shoppingmall, office etc). A DIY-model of the museum served as medium of expression. All individually designed models are presented at the museum. The ideas/expectations are evaluated and incorporated into further development plans.
