Experiencing the Museum | Conference-debate at the Palazzo Trevisan

A museum is a special architectural creation in more than one sense. An emblematic component of the urban landscape, it embodies and conveys a great many representations emanating from the community that built it. The actors involved in such projects all have their own perceptions and expectations regarding the edifice. Which means that the role of the architect is not only to allow dialogue, but also to distil broader perspectives in order to achieve the best possible result.
