Here is an incisive and fully illustrated history of Harvard’s architecture told by the distinguished architectural historian Bainbridge Bunting, author of Houses of Boston’s Back Bay. The book examines the Federal architecture of Charles Bulfinch, H. H. Richardson’s Romanesque buildings, the Imperial manner reflected in Widener Library, as well as the work of such esteemed architects as Charles McKim, Gropius, and Le Corbusier—and it shows us how they all come together to form an amazingly coherent whole. This lively story of a university campus is a veritable microcosm of American architectural experience.
