I don’t know Steven M. Davis, but he’s in the running for my favorite museum architect.

Davis, of Davis Brody Bond, is an architect of the National 9-11 Memorial Museum, and last week he characterized the project for The Wall Street Journal this way:

“In contrast with museums where viewing the building exterior is part of the experience, the memorial museum will be underground and unseen from the surface, said Steven M. Davis, the museum’s architect and partner of Davis Brody Bond LLP.

‘The exhibits are the icon. It’s the inverse of a traditional museum in those respects,’ Mr. Davis said.”

I wonder if Davis could speak with the likes of Richard Meier and Daniel Libeskind.
