Architects Tod Williams and Billie Tsien designed the new Barnes Foundation building with respect for its strong history in education and fine arts, and as a reflective addition of the foundation’s mission. The foundation was located in Merion, Pennsylvania for almost a century where Barnes built a gallery around his collection of French Impressionist, Post-Impressionist, and early Modern paintings. The building is scheduled for completion in late 2011.  More after the break.
