Museums are increasingly embracing digital technology to create more immersive and interactive experiences for their visitors. But at what cost? As designers, do we need to step back and look at these interactive “experiences,” and ensure that we are incorporating “slow” moments for reflection and contemplation? As museum planners and designers, how do we strike a balance between educating and entertaining, reflecting and engaging?

Gensler is ready to hit the road to Austin, Texas, and we need your help! In our proposed South by Southwest (SXSW) 2017 panel, Bevin Savage-Yamazaki, Gensler’s Arts and Culture practice area leader; Sara Devine, Brooklyn Museum; and Zoe Ryan, Art Institute of Chicago, will explore how to balance digital technology in the museum experience.

Join us as we address the impact digital technology is having on museum goers and how lo-fi exhibit spaces co-exist in a digital world.
