Modern Museums

Had the chance to visit the Milwaukee Museum of Art this past week. Santiago Calatrava's stunning architecture was for me in direct competition with Steve Holl's new Bloch building. In my search for photos I came across several other glowing, usually box-like museums and other buildings of the world. Here are a few of them:

Milwaukee Museum of Art: Santiago Calatrava (with two interior views)

The recent addition to the Nelson Atkins: Steven Holl's Bloch building (with interior view/I know the photo dosent do it justice)

Also Steven Hall's work at the Pratt Institute of Art and Design: Higgens Hall

Another of Hall's creations, the Kiasma Museum of Contemporary Art in Helsinki

Alvaro Siza's Santa Monica Museum of Art

Tadao Ando's Fort Worth Museum of Modern Art

Zurich architects Weber & Hofer's Lentos Museum of Modern Art in Linz Austria

Diller Scofidio & Renfro's Boston Museum of Contemporary Art

Herzog & de Meuron's De Young Museum of Modern Art in San Fransisco

Kazuyo Sejima and Ryue Nishizawa's The Toledo Glass Pavilion

Herzon and De Meuron's idea for The New Museum at the Tate

Another design concept by Herzog & de Meuron's of the Parish Art Museum in South Hampton New York
