Top 10 Museums Of 21-st Century

Think museum architecture reached its apex with Frank Gehry’s Bilbao? Think again. The 21st century has so far seen such wonderful, weird buildings that are so dazzling you can forget to look at the art inside. From Farshid Moussavi’s reflective, geometric contemporary art museum in Cleveland to HOK + Beck Group’s surrealist Salvador Dali shrine, here are 10 of our favorites.
