by Tod Williams, Billie Tsien, and Kenneth Frampton.
In The Architecture of the Barnes Foundation (Skira Rizzoli Publications in association with The Barnes Foundation, 2012), architects Tod Williams and Billie Tsien provide a comprehensive description and a behind-the-scenes look at the architectural evolution of the Barnes Foundation's new building, a refined modernist masterpiece in grounds designed by landscape architect Laurie Olin, on Philadelphia's Benjamin Franklin Parkway. The book presents photographs and drawings highlighting the building's sensitivity to the Foundation's original building at Merion, commissioned by Dr. Albert C. Barnes and designed by Paul Cret in the 1920s.
