This illustrated volume documents the entire expansion planning process including the architects' proposals, and transcripts of the various speeches, debates, and forums concerning the two-year effort to select an architect for the expansion of the Museum.
Presented in this volume are the charette submissions, or design exercises, of the ten initial architects, as well as the competition proposals from the three finalists-Jacques Herzog and Pierre de Meuron, Yoshio Taniguchi, and Bernard Tschumi. After an extensive review of these proposals, the commission was awarded to Taniguchi, a model of whose design appears on the cover of this publication. 48 color and 256 b/w illustrations.
