Polish government to take control of WWII museum

This architectural visualization provided by Studio Architektoniczne Kwadrat in Gdynia, Poland, shows how the Museum of the Second World War in Gdansk, Poland, is projected to look after its completion. The fate of the museum, which was scheduled to open in early 2017, is now uncertain after the Polish government has taken steps that could see the whole project scrapped. The government doesn't like it because it objects to its international approach and feels it is not Polish enough. (Krzysztof Droszcz/Studio Architektoniczne Kwadrat via AP) WARSAW, Poland (AP) — Poland's conservative government announced Thursday that it is merging a major museum on World War II that was due to open next year with a different museum that doesn't yet exist, a legal maneuver that allows it to take control of an ambitious new institution.

San Francisco's revamped modern art museum eyes global splash

San Francisco's revamped modern art museum eyes global splash The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art reopens in mid-May after an ambitious $305 million expansion and facelift that aims to rival the world-class art spaces of New York, Paris or London. The revamped museum will be unveiled May 14 following a three-year upgrade entrusted to the Norwegian architecture firm Snohetta -- best known for the dramatic new Alexandria Library in Egypt -- that included more than doubling the exhibition space. The brick structure that has housed the SFMOMA since 1995 in downtown San Francisco is now attached to a huge 10-floor "annex." Outside, a wavy white facade made of more than 700 fiberglass-reinforced polymer panels seems to come alive as the light bounces off at different angles.
