Amon Carter Museum of American Art, 1961, 2001, Philip Johnson, 3501 Camp Bowie Blvd., Cultural District. Architect Philip Johnson used native Texas shellstone for the walls of the inaugural Amon Carter Museum in 1961. The back of the building was expanded in 1964 and in 1977.  In 1998, Philip Johnson/Alan Ritchie Architects were hired to replace the two expansion projects with a whole new addition that retained the original 1961 structure. The new building which opened in 2001 tripled the museum's exhibition capacity.
