Summary
"The general popularity of contemporary museum buildings began in the 1970s. The Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris demonstrated how a museum could open itself up to the city, how it could become a public forum and shed its cloak of pathos. The days in which museums simply preserved and presented works of art are long gone." "Museums in the 21st Century: Concepts, Projects, Buildings discusses the most important trends in modern architecture and, at the same time, documents increasingly intensive exchanges on an international level, portraying museum buildings and projects from 2000 to 2010 on four continents. A closer look at twenty-seven projects, either completed, planned or still under construction provides a broadly based overview of current museum architecture."--BOOK JACKET
