Description:

Architecture is an art form that reflects a number of elements from the society in which it functions. Art museums are public buildings, whose purposes are to house representative works of the society that created it. As such, the buildings themselves also represent the principles of architecture and art of the time and space within which they function. The paper discusses the architecture of the museum and how the design of the structure and its interior fulfills the function of the building as representation of art and society.
