The Delirious Museum gives a new interpretation of the relationship between the museum and the city in the twenty-first century. It presents an original view of the idea of the museum, proposing that it is, or should be, both a repository of the artefacts of the past and a continuation of the city street in the present. Storrie re-views our experience of the city and of the museum taking a journey that begins in the Louvre and continues through Paris, London, Los Angeles and Las Vegas, re-imagining the possibilities for museums and their displays and re-examining the blurred boundaries between museums and the cities around them. On his quest for The Delirious Museum he visits the museum architecture of Soane and Libeskind, the exhibitions of Lissitsky and Kiesler and the work of such artists as Duchamp and Warhol, taking readers on a stimulating journey through cities and museums worldwide. Serious general readers interested in urban culture, design and architecture, as well as professional architects, cultural studies and museology academics will enjoy the book, which is well illustrated in black and white.

Review:

""I am very enthusiastic about this book. It puts forward a very interesting view of the idea of the museum. It is fresh and original, and written with verve.""--Mel Gooding

""The Delirious Museum brilliantly explores the idea of the museum as a place of disorder, a space for wandering and dreaming . . . It is a wunderkammer of a book, an exploration of sites and scenes relating architecture to memory throughout the world.""--Charles Saumarez Smith, Director, National Gallery

""Calum Storrie puts cultural history in his pipe and smokes it. Enjoy...""--Gavin Turk
