  New museums : intentions, expectations, challenges : Musee d'art et d'histoire de Geneve, May 11 - August 20, 2017 / edited by Art Centre Basel, Katharina Beisiegel ; translations, Russell Stockman, Robert Scott McInnes 

The past decade was characterised by a real museum boom which persists today. Throughout the world museums have been built that are as unique as the art they contain, and the process continues. This volume assembles approximately 15 of these museums, designed and realised by the who's who of the architect scene. The architecture of the museums is an artwork in itself. They include buildings such as the Changsha Meixihu International Culture & Art Centre designed by Zaha Hadid and the Zeitz Museum for contemporary African art in Cape Town. With designs that extend from exciting to dynamic to sensuously beautiful the architects have created places of encounter, communication and inspiration which make the world of art accessible to visitors in ways that are not always mapped out by curators
