Philadelphia and the Countryside - Press Room

Barnes Foundation

Barnes Foundation

Barnes Foundation architects Tod Williams and Billie Tsiem designed a “gallery within a garden and a garden within a gallery,” a concept that honors the work of both Dr. Albert Barnes and his wife Laura. Blending art, nature, education and aesthetics, the 4.5-acre Barnes campus is a fitting addition to the culturally rich Parkway. Philadelphia’s tallest building, the Comcast Center, stretches 975 feet high in the distance.
