Reviews

'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 'It's a game that moves as you play. Using a host of well chosen references, Calum Storrie puts cultural history in his pipe and smokes it. Enjoy...' - Gavin Turk'The Delirious Museum, brilliantly explores the idea of the museum as a place of disorder, a space for wandering and dreaming, from Baudelaire to the surrealists, from the situationists to the Centre Pompidou, from Carlo Scarpa to Sir John Soane.
