      The Edward Larrabee Barnes Collection
      Edward Larrabee Barnes graduated from the GSD in 1942, and his subsequent architectural projects-ranging from residences to museums to corporate structures-have been characterized by simplicity, geometrical purity, and sensitivity to site. The Barnes Collection includes material selected by the architect himself: drawings, plans, photographs, models, and related promotional material. Among the projects represented are the Haystack Mountain School of Arts and Crafts in Maine (1959-1961), the SUNY Purchase Master Plan (1966-1977), the Walker Art Center (1966-1971, 1984), the Asia Society Gallery (1981), and the Dallas Museum of Art (1983-1984, 1993) among many others. A number of private homes are also included: Reid House (1948), Osborn House (1949-1950), OConnell House (1951), Buck House (1952), Weiner House (1952), Barnes House (1952), Marsters House (1955), Miller House (1957), Straus House (1958), and Rockefeller House (1965).       Gift of Edward Larrabee Barnes 1993, and Barnes Family 2005
