Project for the permanent exhibition of the LNMA

After extensive restauration, the Latvian National Museum of Art is opened for visitors. Dd has made the permanent exhibition of the museum, taking into account that the central focus of the new exhibition should be on artworks themselves. Artworks are arranged following the chronological principle and are immersed within a multimedia infrastructure that enhances visitors’ experience without impeding the enjoyment of the unique artworks from museum’s collection.

The renovated museum has several exhibition areas, and the architectural character of the historic building is very different from the new annex. Even within the historic part of the museum there are rooms with quite different interiors and atmosphere. The new exhibition respects the diversity of the museum’s architecture and does not try to compete with it, but it creates an integrated and modern display which is user-friendly. It is achieved by considered and effective use of partitions, display stands, touch screens, annotations and signage.

Mobile partitions are made for the exhibition hall in museum's new space.
