ART-WORK-ART-MUSEUM is simultaneously an artwork, a model of an artwork, a work of architecture and an actual museum. By exclusion or inclusion of specific art works an art museum contains its view of art history. Our Art Museum is a repository for a new art and architectural idea, a Mega Idea that is, by default, the summation of all art and architectural ideas. This museum makes reference to and contains all the concepts that constitute an Art Museum. This museum contains the history of Art, the history of Architecture, the history of Art Museums, and the history of Ideas. The art museum is a specific typology that by definition combines art and architecture, and negotiates the boundaries between them. Until recently most art museums were Greco-Roman edifices, with clear distinction between outside and inside, architecture and art, the envelope and its contents. Recently these boundaries have become blurred, but distinctions still remain. Recently the art museums because of their grandiose architecture have become more important then the art that they house. We propose to reverse this and make a work of art that houses a work of architecture.
