Via Playtime, (Agence D’architecture’) I found an interesting article about the new MAXXI (National Museum of 21st Century Art) Museum in Rome, Italy. It took 10 years and 150 million euros to build, but last year it completed. The official inauguration of the museum will take place in the spring of 2010.
The 27,000 square metre centre is Italy’s first national public museum of comtemporary arts and features two museums: MAXXI Art and MAXXI Architecture. It is constructued on the site of the former montello millitary barracks.
