The Globalization Paradigm in Museum Architecture


WHEN February 29, 2016
6:30-8 PM WHERE NYUAD Campus, Conference Center WHO NYU Abu Dhabi Institute Open to the Public

The museum has become one of the most prestigious building types in contemporary architecture. This talk discusses the globalization paradigm in museum architecture that is only manifest in its architectural language derived from western models, and not from non-western cultures or regional traditions. In contrast, according to Saloni Mathur, a new approach to global museums “must extend its gaze […] to other parts of the world, and insist on a wide-ranging view of museological forms, practices and situations that would highlight different topographies of power.”
