2013 AIA Architecture Firm Award Goes to Tod Williams Billie Tsien Architects
The Barnes Foundation in Philadelphia, PA, the museum that controversially transplanted Albert Barnes’ singular collection of Impressionist, Post-Impressionist and Early Modern art from his suburban quasi-private exhibition space to Center City Philadelphia. Williams and Tsien’s new museum replicates the scale, proportion, and configuration of the original Paul Cret-designed museum, while adding new spaces for education, painting conservation, and research.
