Design thinking for museums

Be the first to share

The Design Thinking for Museums site is the outcome of a 2012 partnership between the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) and Stanford’s Hasso Plattner Institute of Design (d.school). It is conceived as a resource for professionals and practitioners interested in applying design thinking in their organizations and includes case studies of design thinking in action, posts by guest authors, interviews with practitioners, and downloadable resource guides. Dana Mitroff Silvers is the site’s editor and primary author.
