The design of Exhibits and Museums is a fascinating synthesis, that has traditionally been an opportunity for blending various interdisciplinary knowledges, but has also bee the place where various fields have fruitfully confronted with each other. In their work, exhibit designers confront with many different areas: architectural space, graphic and corporate design, the scenographic 'mise en scene'.
This always by working on an a very mobile, dynamic ground-always seeking for a balance between information and experience-with the goal of finding a memorable communication synthesis.
Within this track, and taking advantage by the work of the designers that have explored the theme of blending the domains of designing physical space, of designing artifacts and multimedia integration, exibit design had been an important test field for experimenting ides that have often anticipated, and are now part, of the actual scenario of global ocmmunication.
The laboratory deals with a dual and parallel way to approach the general theme of exhibit design: the tangible dimension involving physical artifacts and space, and the communication sphere that lies behind it. With particular emphasis on the new ways to communicate through new media, within the contemporary space of 'expanded' communication.
