Ug this building is so hideous, one of the worst on ASUs campus. Predock also did the Arizona Science Center in Downtown Phoenix, its very similar to this and equally brutalist, ugly and ill fitting for its setting and climate. That guy is one of my least favorite 'starchitects.'

HooverDam, I agree that the ASU Art Museum is an unfriendly edifice! I have a few photos of his Arizona Science Center, which was under renovation when I visited last November:

It is very important that a museum building is very stable and safe of flooding in order to protect well the objects in it.

Sometimes a museum was erected at a historical site in a building, which has a more or less content with the presented objects. Here two examples of Germany:
Sometimes, though, a great building can be a museum's best marketing tool, and it can become a great marketing tool for a city as a whole, which is important because it's often cities that invest in the museums.

I agree that it's good when museums are used to give a new lease of life to an old building, and use the building almost as one of the exhibits. This train museum in Swindon, England is housed in an old train factory.
