Designing the new museum: building a destination
Museums have emerged as major travel destinations for millions of travelers and every major city is adding to an existing museum or planning a new one to compete as a world cultural center. What's new about museum visitors today is that it is not only the collections and shows they are coming to see, it is also the museum building itself. Cities are quickly learning that a new museum, or an addition by a world-class architect can do more to generate tourism than can the acquisition of a major piece of art. This unprecedented collection takes a look at the new museums and museum builders. Presenting in detail a selection of museums which have been built in the past five years or are planned for completion over the next five years, this book will look at these new museums from a design perspective.
