New Museums documents the best of new museum design and features 27 projects in 13 countries in Europe, the United States, Israel, and Japan. The architects represented are among the most renowned practitioners in the world today; in addition to those mentioned above, they include van Berkel + Bos, Santiago Calatrava, Zaha Hadid, Kengo Kuma, and Alvaro Siza, as well as lesser-known, talented designers such as Zvi Hecker in Israel and Diener & Diener in Switzerland. precedents as well as current themes relevant to museum design: the museum as a neutral container, its role in placing art in context, the museum as an addition to an existing building, and as a distinct work of art. drawings, and a project description.
