Traditionalists can rest easy knowing architect Frank Gehry's vision for the Philadelphia Museum of Art does not include wrapping the neoclassical building in his trademark chunky silver swooshes.In Philadelphia, he focused on a massive interior renovation that will allow for more art displays, an education center and amenities like a new cafe.His blueprint creates underground galleries lit by skylights embedded in the museum's terrace. Officials wanted to expand displays of Asian, American and contemporary art in particular, all while making the building more navigable and letting in more natural light.Gehry's idea is to build a sunken seating area in the middle of the steps with a window peeking into the art galleries.
