This husband and wife team of cutting-edge architects have been awarded the job of designing the new home of the Barnes Foundation Museum as part of its relocation from Merion, Pennsylvania to the Benjamin Franklin Parkway in Center City Philadelphia. Williams and Tsein reveal what it was like to compete for the job, which they call the project of a lifetime. This episode includes photos of several of Williams and Tsein's projects, including the American Museum of Folk Art in New York City and Skirkanich Hall at the University of Pennsylvania. They believe in designing buildings from the inside out because, says Williams, we live 90 percent of our lives indoors. Williams and Tsein also talk about living in their very tiny Manhattan loft.
