Museum Model-A. Chung, K. Kuiken, E. Howes

 

  • What does your museum hold?

Our museum, The National Museum of the Silent Generation, will hold defining features of three decades: the 1920s, 1930s, and the 1940s. The displays will vary from fashion, automobiles, war memorabilia, and generally anything that relates to these decades.

  • How does what it hold inform its design?

Because our museum is dedicated to the 1920s, 30s, and 40s, the structure is modeled after the economic success (or failure) of each era. Similar to a graph, it will increases or decreases with the economic failure or growth throughout the years.

  • Where is the location of your museum?

Our museum will be in Washington D.C., most likely by the National Mall or a part of it.

  • What is the impact of your museum on the community where it is placed?

The impact of having a museum specifically dedicated to these eras in history will be a more distinguished knowledge on the time period.
