What Is Museum Urbanism?

For the past few years, the city’s cultural institutions have turned to artists and architects to create a new kind of exhibition, one that seeks to reshape the city surrounding them.

Commissioning new work, rather than cataloging what has already been created, these institutions are engaging in city planning in new and dynamic ways, pushing the conversation, and possibly even the designs, of our built environment in new and unexpected directions.

Here is a look at a number of the shows that belong to the burgeoning movement The Observer is calling Museum Urbanism.
