The American Institute of Architects awarded a prestigious Honor Award to the Barnes Museum and Tod William Billie Tsien Architects. The citation stated: enabling the relocation of the Barnes from its historic home in Merion, Pennsylvania, to downtown Philadelphia, the architects replicated the proportion and configuration of the original galleries in a larger facility that also features a garden and new classroom space.

Congratulations to our clients Tod Williams Billie Tsien Architects and to the Barnes Museum. A great project and new signature building in Philadelphia.

For more than 60 years, the AIA Honor Awards program has "recognized achievements for a broad range of architectural activity to elevate the general quality of architectural practice, establish a standard of excellence against which all architects can measure performance, and to inform the public of the breadth and value of architecture today."
