Barnes Storm: Featured Comment

"I really wish the architects had taken an urbanist's stance towards the southern facade of the building. That space could have been a cafe terrace/restaurant for the museum and engaged the space and southern light to bring life to the Parkway. I love that the area will reap benefits from all the foot traffic with the new Barnes, but as the design stands today, this was a truly missed opportunity to make Ben Franklin Parkway more than just a pretty highway with museums." —Anon ["Checking in on the Barnes Foundation Construction"]
