C&G's Alin Tocmacov will speak at MuseumNext, Europe's major conference on the future of museums in Geneva. Alin is joined by fellow panelists, Seb Chan, Molly Heinz, Avinash Rajagopal, Vera Sacchetti and Viviane Stappmanns to discuss The Sociable Museum. The mission of museums has expanded greatly in the past decade. In their quest to capture a bigger role amidst the cacophony of popular culture, museums have been pulling out all stops to generate conversations both within and beyond their walls. They’ve tried websites, blogs, online discussion forums, Facebook, Twitter, podcasts, mobile apps, and augmented reality devices, individually and in combination, with mixed success. How can institutions harness digital tools to design these conversations, and make them effective, memorable, and resonant? This panel of museum professionals, designers, and design critics will consider the issue at three scales: Intramuseum, Megamuseum, and Extramuseum.

One of the major milestones on the annual design calendar has just appeared on newsstands: PRINT Magazine's Regional Design Awards issue. This year two of the firm's projects have been honored: the Against the Odds exhibition at the Museum of Jewish Heritage, and a monograph of the firm's recent exhibit and environmental designs at the West Point Foundry Preserve in Cold Spring, New York.
Against the Odds encourages visitors to learn about the experiences of WWII-era Jewish refugees and their rescuers through images, original documents, first-person accounts, and multi-sensory interactive design elements. The exhibition is dominated by “paper walls” that represent the significant bureaucratic barriers and extensive paperwork that stood in the way of this heroic undertaking.Read More
