Culture & Art:Museum Des

Culture and Art - Museum Design

by Emlly Luo (Editor)

Museums are often among the most iconic buildings to grace a citys skyline. In fact, through the very prestige of the architects involved and the innovation of material form, a new museum can easily herald a citys arrival on the world stage as a center for art and culture. Some are broad in appeal, collecting signature works in a wide variety of media and from a number of artistic or historic periods. Others are ultra focused, reflecting local or brand heritage. All are unique - thanks to the visions of the architects featured - from the the Maritime Museum in Lingan New City, China surmounted by two seemingly weightless sails to the Riverside Museum in Glasgow with its unforgettable faade and lack of interior columns. Includes designs by Alberto Campo Baeza, Atelier Brckner, Atsushi Kitagawara Architects, Mario Botta, Gmp von Gerkan, Marg and Partners Architects, Steven Holl Architects and Zaha Hadid many with accompanying plans.
