travel world architecture museums

Museum architecture has become one of the primary fields for contemporary, outside-the-box, design experimentation.
More often than not, the financing, whether from a billionaire philanthropist or a government, has been unusually generous allowing for greater freedom of expression.

The ratings shown on these projects are an expression of my own personal tastes and evaluations.
Was the project groundbreaking? Were the spaces inspirational? Was there order and consistently in the design?
How well were the details handled? How was art integrated into the structure? How was the overall experience?
