The Office as a Personal Museum

Autosave-File vom d-lab2/3 der AgfaPhoto GmbH

It began with globes. Then it was maps. Then it was antique collectibles from the World’s Fair, and from there it was just about anything they could get their hands on. All my life, my parents have been collectors, amassing everything from a golf course windmill, to “Buildings of Disaster,” to bank giveaways from the midcentury, to folk art from around the world. Today, my Dad’s office is a shrine to a life spent collecting – a personal museum fit for a museum designer.

  1. Wow, this is fascinating. Really makes you think about what our possessions say about us, and what we might want them to say about us. This looks like a pretty interesting collection to me – there must be some great stories around some of these objects!
