The de Young in the 21st Century: A Museum by Herzog & de Meuron

Martin Filler, architecture critic for the New York Review of Books, wrote:

“The masterpiece of its designers Herzog & de Meuron, San Francisco’s new de Young is the finest work of museum architecture since Frank Gehry’s Guggenheim Bilbao.”

--House & Garden

John King, architecture critic for the San Francisco Chronicle, wrote about this book:

“Worth a look for the smart way it uses the controversial remaking of the de Young Museum as a means to explore the complicated cultural tensions of contemporary San Francisco... first rate interviews with the architectural team and a well-told saga of the project’s architectural evolution by Diana Ketcham.”
