We have made the radical decision to change the name of the museum. The “Museum of Design” – to state its true function – is rooted in a dynamic international scene. Now that entry is gained through the Marsan Pavilion, there is direct access to the nave, a free space open to all, the central agora. As one of the institution’s founding values, transmission shall remain at the heart of the MDD with the inclusion of workshops in the Carrousel and Camondo. This educational dimension will also be extended by the display of hands-on artefacts. We have opted for reversible museum displays given its structure conducive to scaffolding and permanent changes, with a colour-coded journey highlighting each period represented.
