Redesign the Museum Experience--Without a Museum

2,326 views

Published on

This is a presentation I gave to students in the Stanford d.school's flagship course, "Design Thinking Bootcamp," in October 2012. The students in the class are taking on the design challenge of "Redesigning the museum experience… without the museum.” The students will be creating prototypes of products, services, or experiences that help SFMOMA visitors remain engaged with the museum during our upcoming closure and expansion. The solutions will be grounded in user needs that come from direct empathy with museum visitors.
