Museum Buildings: Construction and Design Manual
(50 items available)
The museum as a building type and architectural space bear a complex relationship to one another. Architecture competes with exhibited objects and at the same time gives way to them, enabling the museum to develop. This guide has its point of departure between building and content, targeting both designers and users. The aim is to facilitate communication in the planning process of a museum, whether during the conceptual stage, the competition, or the design and construction phase. In addition to an introduction on the architectural history of the museum, the authors examine the key planning parameters involved in the conception and design of a contemporary museum. Buildings and projects provide inspiration for individual design work.
