OASE #99: The Architecture Museum Effect
Publisher: NAi Publishers 2017 Editors: Sergio M. Figueiredo, Hüsnü Yegenoglu ISBN: 9789462083738 Format: Paperback, 240x170mm
Recent developments show a shift in the themes that architecture museums programme: apparently, social and activist subjects are supplanting classical architectural themes. It is a development expressed by recent exhibitions of both renowned institutes and younger ones. By the looks of it, thematic choices are furthermore increasingly influenced by the social and political contexts of institutes. In terms of storage, new developments such as digitization also lead to radical changes, with consequences that are difficult to predict. OASE 99 analyses and questions these developments and their impact on the current and future role of architecture museums.
