[[abstract]]Abstract In the present generation of creativity, the role of cultural museums has become more revealing because of the globalization concept. Under multicultural competition, enhanced creativity with a distinctive quality of self-culture becomes the method to promote a country’s competitiveness. The art forms of the second half of the 20th century has been diverse and ever-changing. Artists are always searching for breakthroughs as their creative priority. Art has evolved to be more socialized, more literature-based, and more unique. The artistic forms have increased and they affect the different domains in developing new creative methods. In terms of the development of artistic ideas, Taiwan has been known internationally to belong to the border region. The relationship between the organization of space in museums and the artwork has mostly been hindered by technical aspects relating to the tour routes, art collection, and art exhibits. These facilities expend a large quantity of social and government resources. In the present era of information overload, a decline in visitor patronage has required assistance from government funds to subsidize a solution to this predicament. Through the analysis of overseas museums of contemporary art in recent years, we hope these complex art museums can summarize the new creative design connotations and originality found abroad in order to attract the general public. This will provide ideas for the plan designers of future Taiwanese art museums, help us understand the new concepts of the modern Museum of Contemporary Art, and to create an unusal kind of ingenuity and originality. This research uses the Artistic Creations Analogy research method, which includes: the expression of the artist’s concepts, the architect’s investigations into spatial problems and his opinions on time issues serve as the items of analysis for museum design concepts. With research of ten different cases, we discovered an exemplary museum of contemporary art. The design must first satisfy three essential spatial elements: the first item is creation method (concept), namely creative attempts, also known as the ability of spatial practice. The second item is that it must satisfy spatial features, also known as representations of space, which is an ability that relates to establishing knowledge. The third item relates to the perspective of time, also known as representational space, which is a knowledge based on experience and sense; it is a form of memory hidden within bodily interaction. The primary form of modern contemporary art is the portrait, which is shown in the development aspect of museums of contemporary art. In recent years, “the Epidermis” has become the most popular architectural design. From “Sensual Love” of the Guggenheim Bilbao to "The Puritan" of Kazuyo Sejima, advance notice has been given on the “unfolding” era of artwork and art museums.
