Inga Saffron on Frank Gehry

"Gehry's most daring idea involves cutting a chunk of the Rocky steps so a roughly 24-foot-high window can be inserted halfway up. It would form the east wall of the new gallery and offer views of the skyline. Toying with the iconic steps is sure to be controversial, but the museum should be allowed one daring move." - Inga Saffron on Frank Gehry's plan for the Philadelphia Museum of Art. [Philly.com]
