When we have something precious to keep, we usually find a very precious container. We put it in a safe place and enjoy watching it from time to time. However, some of us end up appreciating more the container than what it’s contained, right?

A museum is a space that conserves a collection of artifacts.
Therefore, a museum is a container.

Sometime ago I published 17 Architecturally Amazing Fashion Stores in which I explained how retail architecture was somehow a container of art too. Visuals play an important role here, light and color change our perception of space, movement and even time. Items displayed are supposed to be the main characters in this game, but not in these cases I’m afraid. These buildings speak for themselves as unique art pieces.

My favorite is #1, yours?
