Fisher categorizes the spaces in which art is displayed into loft, house or box. The loft typology consists of either industrial spaces, or repurposed spaces that serve as workspace and dwelling for the artist. The art in this type of space is heavily influenced by its surroundings, and often references elements of it. Examples of this typology are Donald Judd’s studios in New York and Marfa, the renovation of MoMA P.S.1, and the Eli Broad Foundation.

Fisher maintains that the house is the oldest form of museum, since museums evolved from inhabited palaces. The addition to the Huntington Library is meant to conform to the residential typology. The box typology consists of a neutral space in which the art is the only point of focus and does not reference its surroundings. Examples of this type include the Twombly gallery in Houston by Renzo Piano, the Kirchner Museum in Davos, and Fisher’s own LA Louvre gallery in Venice.
