Together with doorzon we had the chance to develop a new concept for the presentation of the permanent collection of the Design museum in Ghent.
The premise: A permanent collection shouldn’t necessary result in a permanent exhibition. This partially 'curatorial' challenge, in opening up a +20.000 pieces strong collection towards the broad public, induced a design proposal that aims at incorporating ‘room for doubt’.
By closing off the inner core of the building from the space around it we consolidate the spatial duality that was already inherent in the plan. The perambulation around our newly created center we use to showcase a selection of masterpieces. The core itself provides a place for experiment: A permanent resource for temporary interventions continuously revisiting the collection in its full range and depth.
