By David B. Brownlee

Preface by Robert Venturi

Architecture, museology, 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 reinstallation projects of the 1990s. The text is richly documented with archival photographs and superb new color photography.
