Documentation of results (web-optimised)

The Staatlichen Kunstsammlungen Dresden are among the most important museums in the world. At its heart lies the Residenzschloss, the collection's place of origin and the center of the museum's operations with exhibition spaces, workshops and offices. For hundreds of SKD employees, the Residenzschloss is the reference point for their daily work.

Collection, work community and visitors are the pillars of a lively museum operation. While the care and presentation of the collection, as well as the number and experience of visitors, are self-evident focal points of the work, the quality and appreciation of the employees is the prerequisite for the continued implementation of this work. Therefore, the attractive design of the staff areas also requires constant updating.

The aac Autumn Workshop 2022 focused on the Residenzschloss as a modern place of reference for work. The aac's brief pursued the goal of developing design strategies for the development of the employee spaces that exist within the palace walls. In this way, spaces were to be created that support the qualifications of the employees, reflect the significance of the work and promote a mutually enjoyed presence.

The task combined the challenges of built resources with the development of design typologies regarding modern work environments. For the second time, the SKD provided the real life parameters to a future-relevant aac workshop topic.
