Module I - Recording quantity structures for depot and storage technology planning in museums
What basic information on storage technology is needed for a depot project? How is the necessary information on the collection collected, evaluated and presented? What background knowledge do I need to be able to estimate the requirements?
The role of the user in depot planning - success factors in project development
How to ensure that the common thread between users, architects, planners and executors does not break over the duration of a project. The new construction and conversion as well as the occupation of a depot are now complex matters with a large number of participants. The better the user is prepared and positioned, the greater the chance that the result will be satisfactory.
