MA Narrative Environments

Hot off the press: The Future of Museum and Gallery Design co-edited by Tricia Austin

We are excited to launch a new publication co-edited by our very own MA Narrative Environments course leader Tricia Austin, with Suzanne Macleod, Jonathan Hale and Oscar Ho Hing-Kay.


The Future of Museum and Gallery Design introduces new research and practice in Museum Design.

Bringing together multiple voices from all over the world, the book presents a vision of museums as catalysts for critical debate, cultural exchange and community building.

Placing a specific emphasis on social responsibility in its broadest sense,  the book encourages greater understanding of the impact of museum design on the experience of visitors and in the shaping of civic spaces for culture in our shared social world.

It makes a case for more open and experimental approaches to making museums and highlights the many ways socially-engaged design can help to transform museums into agents of change.

“The Future of Museum and Gallery Design” is published by Routledge and available in Hardback, Paperback and Kindle format on Amazon as well as at academic publishing retailers.
