The exhibition will be shown at Musées d’Art et d’Histoire de Genève in Switzerland, until October 8, 2017.
The past decade of both economic crisis in Europe and North America as well as extraordinary growth of wealth in Asian countries has led to new questions and concepts for future museum buildings. The exhibition ‘New Museums: Intentions, Expectations, Challenges’ investigates these questions by analyzing recent and future designs on all continents.
Through contemporary project studies it aims to show, with a particular focus on sustainability, how museums position themselves as places of exchange and communication. The role of the museum as a location factor for economic development and gentrification of towns and regions remains controversial. Nevertheless these are still essential criteria in the planning of new museums. The driving question behind many new projects is the relation between current and future requirements that have to be met by the museum. This will therefore also be the central and combining factor of this exhibition.
Further strands of investigation followed by this project include: The development of museums towards multifunctional social spaces providing a platform for a vast variety of activities and the rising number of private art museums in which individual collectors showcase their collection and operate outside the conventional rules of long established public institutions. Furthermore the conversion of existing structures, such as silos, airplane hangars or train depots, and extension of museums becomes more important since urban space is limited and the ecological footprint of buildings has to decrease.
The exhibition illustrates how museums change under communal, commercial and cultural influences and the important role the new museum as a stimulating factor can play for an entire region.
Large scale models provided by the architecture firms are accompanied by photographs and digital renderings as well as multimedia presentations. The exhibition presents a wide array of information such as interviews with architects, museum directors and private collectors. It provides a comprehensive insight into the thought processes and the collective work that feed into the development of new museums.
Curated by Art Centre Basel in collaboration with Musées d’Art et d’Histoire de Genève

anySCALE - we share an affinity for certain life values such as leading a healthy lifestyle and designing considerately for the next generation.
The three anySCALE partners, Karin, Tom and Andreas, have known and worked with each other for over a decade in Beijing, first coming together as coworkers in their previous company. It didn’t take long for them to discover that they shared similar views and standards when it came to areas of design, business, and life in general. Raising young families and with their children attending the same school, they in particular share an affinity for certain life values such as leading a healthy lifestyle and designing considerately for the next generation. In 2011 the three friends decided to embark on their own adventure by founding SCALE in Hong Kong, the mother company of anySCALE. One year later anySCALE was founded in Beijing. Most recently the company is proud to announce it’s latest addition of anySCALE Shanghai in 2016.
When working on any project each partner has his or her unique strengths to contribute, and, like with different flavours in a dish, when combined they work well together to enhance and support each other. Andreas brings his invaluable experience in the automotive industry as well as his pure lines and clean, considered details to the table. Tom’s constant search for optimisation is balanced with his mischievous side, always staying ahead of the game by injecting an element of surprise into his projects. Karin brings sophistication and class to any project, and has a natural ability for understanding a client’s ideas and translating them into reality.
During the last five years Tom, Karin and Andreas have formed a strong presence in China’s design market. anySCALE has a reputation for strong corporate identity development and has become the design face for companies such as Soho China, BMW and Daimler. The company has grown from a staff of 4 to 24 by 2015, translating into a 150% year-on-year growth, and expanded over three locations. It’s safe to say anySCALE is on the rise, and we’re all excited to see where this adventure leads.
