NPR Report on the Ara Pacis Museum

NPR has a 5 minute audio report on-line about the Ara Pacis Museum. It contains some interesting news but sounds over dramatized by the reporter - of course it dwells on the "controversy" of the building. I can only imagine how frustrating it must be for the architect - love it or hate it, the building can not escape that conversation. There are some snippets from an interview with Meier and from some Italians who are both pro and con the project. It's worth a listen.
