MoM: Museum of Museums
TEAM: Andrea Di Nezio, Italy
Interactive research centre on the museum building typology
Classical museums, contemporary museums, museums of paintings, of scupltures, of art in general; museums of technology, of history, of food and wine, museums of civilization, of military, of wars, naval museums; interactive museums, educational museums, virtual museums, diffused and exploded museums, temporary museums, open-air museums, museums of the ordinary…
The museum has seen a lot of transformations and different hypothesis throughout history, so what to do next? How to innovate one of the most important institution of human civilization?
Of course there is no easy answer, so this project focuses its attention on the museum itself proposing the one museum that is missing: a museum of museums.
Organized over a simple grid of blocks, MoM will be the greatest museum ever existed showcasing all the museums ever conceived. It will function as much as a public museum as a research centre (host in a continuous and elevated structure) fostering the study about the museum typology with the porpouse of innovating it by experimenting new and unexpected designs.
The museums will be reconstructed empty since the protagonists of the MoM are the museums themeselves.
