Rodin Museum Historic Garden Rejuvenation
The historic Rodin Museum – designed by architect Paul Cret and landscape architect Jacques Greber – was completed in 1928 and houses one of the largest collections of Auguste Rodin’s work in the world. The rejuvenation project is meant to amplify the effect of the original design. The renovations draw more attention to the garden entrance and re-establish the museum as a significant destination along the Benjamin Franklin Parkway.
The Lighting Practice worked closely with the landscape architects and museum curatorial staff to develop an understated lighting treatment that enhances security for visitors while creating an elegant nighttime identity for the museum.
