Why We Love This

In 2007, Tod Williams Billie Tsien Architects received the commission to design the new Barnes Foundation building in Philadelphia, an enviable project that was surrounded by both controversy and the excitement of increasing access to one of America’s premier collections of post-Impressionist art, amassed by Dr. Albert C. Barnes in the early 20th century. The book presents photographs and drawings highlighting the new building’s sensitivity to the ideology of Dr. Barnes and the creativity of Paul Cret, who designed the foundation’s original gallery in Merion, PA.
