Top 10 new museums and cultural venues of 2018


designboom makes its selection of the top 10 museums and cultural venues this year. 2018 saw the opening of several much-anticipated museums and cultural centers around the world. Bold designs characterize the buildings, as established names in the field of architecture have collaborated with some of the biggest cultural institutions across the globe to bring their creative visions to life.

Stretching out into Dundee’s  River Tay, Kengo Kuma’s geometric V&A Dundee Museum is inspired by Scotland’s dramatic cliffs, while Alvaro Siza designed a series of concrete structures for an arts complex in South Korea.

Other museums and cultural centres featured in the top 10 are in Japan and China, among other countries. 

designboom starts its annual TOP 10 round up of the year’s most talked about projects with a look at ten museums and cultural centers featured on designboom over the past 12 months.
