*According to The Exhibit Designer
A compilation of exhibit design-related web finds

Discourse
+ The exhibition China Design Now at the Portland Art Museum transformed the city and demonstrated the four Cs of relevant museum experiences: Content, Conversation, Curation, and Continuation.
+ Go on and spend some quality time in the New York Times Museums Special Section.

Science Fiction?
+ The D-Shape printer uses sand and magnesium-based glue to print 3D rock sculptures…potentially entire buildings…potentially on the moon. (Riiight…that’s stretching things a bit, but it is a cool printer.)

Inspiration: Materiality
+ The Curno Public Library in Italy is an august “monolith of concrete pigmented with iron oxides, completely decorated with a bas-relief engraved with the letters of the alphabet.” Beautiful.
+ Frank Gehry uses plywood in some funky ways for the Signature Theater Company in NY.
+ Photos from Shanghai as it prepares for the 2010 World Expo…amazing creativity. (The Seed Cathedral!!)
