The Role Of Museum And Sensory Design Of Rebuilding Place In Museology


It is becoming increasingly difficult to ignore the impact of global warming and armed conflicts towards a catastrophic human heritage. These situations require the museum to review its role as an institution in collecting, preserving and communicating our cultural inheritance to the society. Meantime, the growth population of people with visual disability around the world will enquire issues such human inequality in accessing built environment and intellectual accessibility in viewing the national treasures. This paper seeks to address the following issues; 1) to identify the role of museum in today’s society especially in Malaysia in rebuilding place for the inclusivity of the public; and 2) to explore the potential of sensory design in museology. Method applied was only based on observation and literature review. The paper aims to initiate the key concept that links between ‘sensory design’ and ‘museology’ in the context of sustainable development of cultural and heritage hence, rebuilding place. The findings are intended to be used as a framework in developing a tool that provide an equalization of opportunities for persons with disabilities to appreciate arts, culture and heritage in the built environment.
