Design your vision of museums of the future: The world is becoming "museumized". "Preservation", which has been an area of expertise of museums, is becoming a universal issue encountered in the course of human activities during a time when vast quantities of things and information are being created around the world. To deal with this trend, a framework is needed which isn't limited to historical assets that have been selected as time passes, but that also incorporates things and information as current assets. Collected things and information can be used as resources to construct the future, in addition to being stored as a record of the past. Such vast museum resources can be expected to serve as a base leading to the formulation of new academic expertise and new social endeavors. In other words, while museums have an important function as centers of preservation, they should also become places that inspire creation. In this course, we will explore various ideas and practices relating to the design of new social roles and forms of existence for museums. Course participants are expected to actively engage in the creation of new ideas and values, covering a wide range of areas such as natural history, art, system planning, design of spaces, exhibition planning, and expression of information.
