Re: [design] where the Barnes might move to

The site for the Barnes Foundation on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway has just
been chosen--site of the present Youth Study Center (euphemism for juvenile
jail) -- www.quondam.com/09/0817.htm across 20th Street from the Free
Library of Philadelphia, designed by Horace Trumbauer and soon to be
appended by a Moshe Safdie addition --
http://libwww.library.phila.gov/expansion/expandSafdieConcepts.cfm . The
proposed Calder Museum by Tadao Ando on the south side of the Parkway will
be across from the Barnes.

[I'm pretty sure the radio newsman said that a "replica" of the present
Barnes Foundation (a design by Paul Cret) will be built on the Youth the
Study Center site of the Benjamin Franklin Parkway. Gosh, just what the
Parkway needs, another reenactment.]
