From Concept to Plan
After 30 years of waiting, Design Museum Gent is finally on the eve of the long-awaited expansion with its new wing DING (Design in Ghent), it is only logical that we decided to show what this expansion exactly entails and will look like in our final exhibition.
connectDING. From concept to plan shows the fascinating process in which Design Museum Gent went in search of the capstone that connects the three existing museum buildings.
“This capstone gives the museum the necessary space for a reception and shop, temporary exhibitions, workshops and education, lectures and events, art handling and logistics, new sanitary facilities and – last but not least - an elevator.”
Sami Souguir, alderman for culture, City of Ghent
“This expansion and renovation are not about more museum, but about more than a museum.”
Katrien Laporte, director Design Museum Gent
