Museum architecture around the world inspires design, provokes ideas, pushes the limits of the possible, and creates vibrant places for people. The design of galleries and museum buildings can be instrumental in the formation of place and the strengthening of community. Architecture can also help foster diverse experiences and opens the workings of the museum to the public.
Based on chapters written for a recent book, two Australian architects offer insights into the future of gallery design for community and curiosity.
