Foster reveals 'crystal jewel box' for Boston

Foster and Partners has unveiled its £297 million design for the Boston Museum of Fine Art. The plan will result in a 'crystal spine'running the full east/west axis of the building. The architect has also designed a further wing on the western edge of the museum and a study centre. Conservation studios and scientific research labs will be expanded and relocated to the study centre, as well as the museum's library and curatorial offices.
