Projektfeld Ausstellung / Project Scope: Exhibition Design
The book is a fundamental reference work for exhibition designers, architects, and museum professionals who want to adequately conceive, design, plan, and produce clearly focused thematic exhibitions.
Each thematic field represents different challenges for an exhibition design. This typology by Bertron Schwarz Frey elaborates the special features of the various thematic fields – nature, archeology, history, art, and science. Sketches, floor plans, visualizations, and photographs illustrate the approach, whose essential structure remains the same while finding a different solution for each theme. For students of architecture, interior design, exhibition design, scenography, and visual communication it is also useful as an introduction to the subject. The book presents current exhibitions including the Museum für Naturkunde and the Jewish Museum in Berlin, the Pommersches Landesmuseum in Greifswald, and the Württembergisches Landesmuseum in Stuttgart. Ulrich Schwarz has been professor of design at the Berlin University of the Arts since 2000.
