What makes an effective exhibition space? How can center stage be given to to the works on display whilst also creating a place of architectural merit? Attempts are made to answer these and other questions and the surrounding issues through a wide variety of proposals for exhibition spaces. Ideas are introduced that can transform what otherwise would be an undistinguished series of rooms into a space that facilitates the enjoyment of the subject in question, whether they be works of art or artifacts in a museum. Architects with a wealth of experience in the field share their thoughts and concepts through explanatory texts illuminated by excellent full-colour photography of some of their finest projects.
