Museums face challenges regarding relevance, transparency, and engagement with their communities. Central to the process is a re-examination of its architectural asset. Nationally acclaimed architect Jennifer Luce presents her latest work — the $55M re-imagination of Mingei International Museum, offering solutions to issues facing architects of cultural projects.
Mingei is a Japanese term meaning “the art of the people” and celebrates human creativity. It is located within America’s largest urban Park in San Diego.
The presentation includes the series of commissioned collaborations with acclaimed women artists, which simultaneously act as singular artistic objects and functioning utility with the building’s redesign and purpose.
