An exterior view of the $114 million addition to the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. An egg-crate metal sunshade extends from the new lobby, which leads to the original museum through a suite of glass-walled rooms. A copper-clad upper level houses a 2,000-square-foot temporary exhibition gallery and a 300-seat recital hall.
