In the course of 1:1 Period Rooms the audience was invited to participate in a variety of activties and become involved in a dialogue about the spatial strategies that inform the discourse and representation in museums. The 1:1 model was central to the discussion.
The symposium held on 2 April 2015 that concluded the 1:1 Period Rooms programme focused on the narrative capacity of the 1:1 model and the extent to which - with its at once recognisable and alienating environment - it is capable of inviting the audience to relate to a story or specific question. Which instruments do the 1:1 model offer the exhibition maker?
Interiors on display
Architects and designers still use 1:1 installations to illustrate their thoughts on the relationshiop between architecture, design and the interior. Some of these influential interiors, documentend in the eleventh edition of DASH, were presented to the public during this event on 12 February 2015.
The period room seems to have regained our interest. This renewed attention for the period room was the subject of the fourth in the series of evenings on 26 March 2015.

Penny Sparke (Kingston University, London) en Greg Castillo (University of California, Berkeley) spoke on 5 March 2015 about their research in to the period room.
