KahnVolutions at the Yale Center for British Art

"A museum seems like a secondary thing, unless it is a great treasury.
A treasury, a guarded love for your source. ... You're not forced to go in.
You go to see one thing or you are taken there to see it,
and its part of the visual history, the sense of the unmeasureable."
~Louis Kahn from the essay "The Visible City"
