• V&A Museum of Childhood Resident

Hashemi-Nezhad, Bahbak, 2016, Residency, V&A Museum of Childhood Resident

Abstract or Description:

As part of my residency at the V&A’s Museum of Childhood, I am interested in exploring through a series of design proposals and interventions in the Museum and the locality, how the voice of the youth and children who will benefit from the Museum can enter a dialogue often reserved for professional architects, designers and decision-makers.

By reframing what consultation and citizen participation mean, I want to ask how we can inhabit the same space and understand value systems when it comes to imagining a preferred present and future alternatives at this formative phase of the V&A Museum expanding further east.

Furthermore I am excited to begin to explore the archive, looking out for different ways in which play has acted as a permissive tool to express preferred alternatives for living, from informal games and role play to toys and more established play theory.
