Barnes Foundation: Relocation

Despite the controversy surrounding the relocation of the Barnes, as chronicled in the 2009 documentary The Art of the Steal, the building design for the foundation has surprised me.  Designed by Tod Williams Billie Tsien Architects (here) true to their design philosophy, they've created a building that evokes a sense of lasting and beauty.  I was apprehensive with the initial build and location of the foundation at the start, but thoroughly surprised by the lovely result.
