This in-gallery talk will be led by the designers of the new museum currently under development in Lusail. This will provide an interactive discussion allowing the audience to visualize the thought process behind the design of the new Lusail Museum, scheduled to break ground this year. This event will take place in the central space of the exhibition which is dedicated to the architecture of the new museum. This space is curated by the firm Herzog & de Meuron and presents the design process through wall projections and a large floor installation showcasing working models, concept images, and material samples. The room also includes a newly commissioned model of the Museum.
