More building


My friend, Bay, wrote to remind me of yet another Philadelphia building project I had overlooked in my write-up the other day — the Calder Museum, which stopped being a gleam in somebody’s eye and became real in 2001 when Japanese architect Tadao Ando got the go-ahead to design the thing. According to the Philadelphia Museum of Art website, costs for the Calder Museum, which will be administered by the PMA, are estimated at $50 million– $35 million for construction and $15 million for an endowment. The museum is to be sited on the Parkway across the street from the Rodin Museum. (Image is Alexander Calder’s “Ordinary,” now installed on the Parkway at 22nd St., the site of the soon to be museum) Read more on the Philadelphia Museum‘s website.
