Planning a museum, exhibition or heritage site requires multidisciplinary thinking and an approach that takes into account both spatial and time characteristics. The lecture by Tom Duncan highlights projects of the Duncan McCauley studio and provides insight into the design of narrative, sequential spaces and the development of meaningful and rewarding visitor experience. Among the projects presented is, among others, the new visitor experience at Vischering Castle near Münster in Germany and the exhibition “Diana: Her Fashion Story” at Kensington Palace, London.
