Publisher's description: The museum as a building type and architectural space bear a complex relationship to each other. Architecture competes with the exhibited objects on the one hand and gives way to them on the other, enabling the museum to develop as regards content. Between these two poles, this book is intended to facilitate communication in the planning process. With an essay on the architectural history of the museum and the key planning parameters for design.
