The architecture of museums

Front Cover
Stellar cultural meccas built recently set superb standards for the next century.

In addition to housing our cultural heritage, museums serve as spiritual retreats and prime tourist attractions. Museum commissions go only to the best architects, and the structures they create constitute their most emblematic work, as seen here by Renzo Piano, Eric van Egeraat, Frank O'Gehry, Mario Botta, Rein Koolhas, and Henry Ciriani.
