"The museum of the future will become a complex with elements such as amusement facility, lifelong education, people's workshop, information center, etc. Obviously this will turn a museum into a complex of several architectures. The method of Abstract Symbolism, which gives each architecture its own independent geometric figure (such as a circle, cube, ellipse) and reorganizes them as a complex, is effective in designing a museum."
