David B. Brownlee (Author), with a preface by Robert Venturi. Color photography by Graydon Wood.
Architecture, art history, and city politics come together in this lively account of the evolution of the building that houses the Philadelphia Museum of Art. The story spans the decades of planning and construction that preceded the 1928 opening of the "wonderful Greek garage" on Fairmount through the re-installation projects of the 1990s. The text is richly documented by both archival photographs and superb new color photography.
