The Barnes Foundation Philadelphia

Designed by Tod Williams and Billie Tsein Architects the Barnes campus sits on a beautifully landscaped, four-and-a-half acre site in the heart of Philadelphia’s cultural corridor. The building houses Dr. Albert C. Barnes’s art collection in a gallery that replicates the original rooms in Merion. In addition to the gallery, the campus has a changing exhibition space, classrooms, seminar rooms, a library, and an auditorium to facilitate educational opportunities. A visitor information center, large indoor court, restaurant, and gift shop provide warm and welcoming spaces for all.
