Survey analyzes the so-called museum boom, takes 652 new museums and museum extensions, completed between 1995 and 2012, as case studies, exploring the museomania phenomenon from a statistical point of view. What are the ideal sizes, volumes and functions of a museum? Are there any economies of scale linked to size? Are there differences between the different museum types? What impact does the architects' fame have on the investment? What difference does new technology make? Study also contains three essays by Marco de Michelis, Aaron Betsky and Matthias Sauerbruch.
