National Museum of Australia, Canberra Australia

The National Museum of Australia was built in the Acton suburb of Australia's Acton Peninsula. Architect Howard Raggatt threw together many various elements in a messy display of "puzzling confluence." It is a "tangled vision" of Australia's history. It opened in 2001.

The zigzag pattern of the main building was apparently copied from Libeskind's Jewish Museum in Berlin. In post-modernist fashion, the unapologetic architect establishes a modern museum by copying forms without sensitivity for the new environment.

Braille words on the exterior's anodised aluminium panels have also stirred up controversy, with speculation about their meaning and some of them being covered over.
