  9. 10. <ul><li>“ I’ve always been jealous of music, because music surrounds you, gets inside of you, affects you. A piece of sculpture just sits there. But what if you could walk through an entire environment that is a big work of art?” </li></ul><ul><li>“… we don’t really cater to kids. We don’t do market studies to find out what people would like. We didn’t figure out who our demographics were. We built it because we wanted to build it.” </li></ul><ul><li>“ Usually the way something gets built is a board gets together and comes up with a mission statement, and they a search for an architect, and they go through the approval process, and then they start raising funds, and by the time something built, they forgot what it was for in the first place. When we get an idea here, we start building it that afternoon.” </li></ul><ul><li>Using “thousands of anonymous designers we are constantly inspired and tipped off to different design directions.” </li></ul>Bob Quotes About the Museum
