By means of scale models, sketches, mock-ups and material samples, the exhibition enables you to discover how the design evolved from project definition to architectural concept to final plan.
Since 1993, Design Museum Gent has been waiting for a new wing as the final piece of the puzzle, with space for a reception area and a shop, temporary exhibitions, workshops and education, lectures and events, art handling and logistics, sanitary facilities and, most importantly, a lift. Now the time has finally come! The brand-new DING wing will open its doors by mid-2024.
DING (Design in Gent) is the long-awaited bridge between three existing buildings of Design Museum Gent. The new wing will be located in Drabstraat, on the vacant plot currently occupied by the giant toilet roll. The foundation stone will be laid in the spring of 2022.
