Culture and accessibility, redesigning a museum for all
A new multimedia digital archive to easily access a huge visual heritage

The Mufoco Museum, Italy's first public museum dedicated to contemporary photography and the technological image, has risen to the challenge of becoming more functional, more human, more welcoming, with a new project signed by Dotdotdot.

Dotdotdot developed an interactive multimedia installation to navigate the photographic archive in an immersive way with an intuitive way.

The project also involved redesigning the layout, furniture and graphic system to create an inclusive environment accessible for all.

An emotional digital archive

The beating heart of the revamped space is a new interactive and immersive installation that provides accessible and personalised access to the digital photo archive: a large multimedia wall with a touch surface engages visitors in an intuitive exploration of thousands digitised images from Mufoco's 40 photographic fonds. The fruition is accompanied by an immersive sound design for an intimate and emotional experience.

An accessible, modular and flexible design

With the aim of improving the welcoming and amusement of the experience for all visitors: the design interventions focus on modular, mobile and reconfigurable furniture for a flexible and independent use of space designed to be accessible for all visitors.

The augmentative alternative communication graphic system, the digital signage and a wayfinding system animated by augmented alternative communication system are characterised by graphic elements designed to smoothly orient even people with cognitive disabilities.
