Philadelphia: The Barnes Foundation

This post is long overdue.  Work and travel schedules have been nuts and although I've been taking some photos, I just haven't had the time to post process and visit the blog.  For the two or three that actually follow this, I appreciate it.  Tonight I decided to do a night photo shoot of our freshly completed Pennsylvania Convention Center project.  Unfortunately, the programming of the color-changing lights was not function correctly so I jumped on over the the Ben Franklin Parkway to grab some shots of the new Barnes Foundation museum.  Completed by Tod Williams and Billie Tsien Architects out of NYC, the new museum sits in a prominent location along the Parkway, adjacent to the Rodin Museum.  The landscape and hardscape are still finishing up but the museum is open and looking good.  FMS did a pretty nice job on the lighting.
