There is no contesting the fact that digital technology has become increasingly important in the museum sector. As we look ahead to Lausanne’s new PLATEFORME 10 museum district – which will bring together the mcb-a, Musée cantonal des Beaux-Arts (Cantonal Museum of Fine Art), the Musée de l’Elysée (photography museum) and the mudac - Museum of Contemporary Design and Applied Arts – we are organizing an international symposium to examine the role and prospects of digital innovation in museums, both exploring recent experience and looking to the future. The symposium is part of an ongoing process of exploring how the three museums can open up beyond their physical borders to offer an original and innovative visitor experience. It is in keeping with the museum district’s geographical location in an area driven by innovation and research, and follows on from reflections on architecture that resulted in two award-winning firms being selected to design the district: Barcelonabased Barozzi Veiga for the Musée des Beaux-Arts and Lisbon-based Aires Mateus for mudac and the Musée de l’Elysée.
