How might the British Museum re-distribute their artefacts across the urban realm, to invite a dialogue about their value, significance, meaning and interpretation? 
       
     
   The (re) distributed museum    Working in interdisciplinary groups, MA Interior Design (ID) and Information Experience Design (IED), students were assigned artefacts of the collection of the British Museum for re-situating/re-distributing elsewhere in London. As results of this week-long project, digital and analogue designs were proposed. The artifact's provenance, historical and contemporary significance had a strong narrative connection to the site they moved it to and the ‘display’ structure they developed.   Tutors: Prof. Peter Higgins and Dr Harriet Harriss (ID), Michaela French and Dr Helga Schmid (IED)  Image Credits: British Museum, RCA Students: Pennie Dawes, Shihao Xu, Daisy Buckley, Ryutaro Arai, Nahye Han, Teddy Choi, Pippa Oakes, Ran Wei, Grace Pappas, Joy Matashi, Yun Cheng, Ruilin Quan   British Museum  and  Royal College of Art , 2017
