The author of The Future of the Museum talks with architects from David Adjaye to Sou Fujimoto about the future of museum architecture
Following on the widely read volume The Future of the Museum: 28 Dialogues, New York–based author and cultural strategy advisor András Szántó turns his attention to architects. The conclusion of The Future of the Museum was that the conceptual structure of art museums has evolved; it follows that the physical structure of the art museum must also change. Szántó’s conversations with architects survey the thinking in the field, engaging architects who have built some of the world’s most iconic institutions and an emerging global generation that is destined to leave its mark on the museum of the future.
