Large format. Publisher's description: According to Orham Pamuk, "Real museums are places where Time is converted into Space." In this lavishly illustrated title we investigate these spaces. Since Frank Gehry created the phenomenon that is The Guggenheim in Bilbao, thus transforming the city into a popular tourist destination, there has been a boom in the investment, both creative and financial, in the architecture of museums. They showcase contemporary and experimental architecture at its best. Fully illustrated with exterior and interior photography, Museums encircles the globe and highlights these modern showpieces alongside the timeless splendor of their more classical predecessors. The buildings presented represent a wide range of spatial and architectural concepts, from the modest to the massive, from the subtle to the show stopping, from white cubes, to freestanding structural buildings, to lavish baroque masterpieces.
