The students of the Berlin cohort in the Knowledge Integration program invite you to experience the culmination of our third-year design project: The Museum Course.
After spending ten days in Berlin last spring, we returned to Waterloo in September ready to implement some of the design features we examined on our trip. Working in teams to produce these exhibits has been a rewarding and unique experience.
In building our exhibits, we have moved beyond the traditional projects and assignments typical of an undergraduate experience. The creation process allowed us to be self-directed and enabled us to incorporate skills from many different disciplines. The result is an exhibition that showcases our knowledge of museums and their design methods, as well as our teamwork and dedication to something that is a little out-of-the-box.
Visit our exhibits and learn about:
- Photographs and memories are increasingly being viewed as interchangeable ways to preserve the past. To what extent are they actually interchangeable? How do photographs affect your memories?
- Immersive reality: explore what makes you feel like you’re in a new world.
- Have you ever considered whether time could be measured in more than minutes?
- What do you trust? Explore how trust relationships shape your interactions with everyday objects, and learn to think critically about how and by whom trust is manufactured and broken.
