Cass Gilbert, architect : modern traditionalist by Sharon Irish( Book )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 285 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"American architect Cass Gilbert built many of the major monuinents of his generation. Inspired by design throughout the ages - ancient Greece and Rome, medieval and Renaissance Europe, and contemporary traditions such as the Richandsonian Romanesque - he created buildings for the sites, clients, and programs of his own time."--BOOK JACKET. "Gilbert's career reached its peak in the 1910s and 1920s with civic and commercial buildings of great significance; the Woolworth Company Building (at its 1913 completion the tallest building in the world) and the New York Life Insurance Company Building, both in New York City, the United States Military Oceans Terminal in Brooklyn, and the United States Supreme Court Building in Washington, D. C. These landmark works, emblematic of Gilbert's mastery of form and expression, reaffirm his position as a leader in design and in the profession."--BOOK JACKET
The plan for New Haven by Frederick Law Olmsted( Book )

4 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

" Long before cities were scrambling to go green and eco-conscious commuters were sensibly strapping on their bike helmets, New Haven, Connecticut, was envisioning a plan for its growth taken from the challenging ideas of the City Beautiful Movement and its call for civic monumentality. In a 1910 plan commissioned from legendary landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted and prominent architect Cass Gilbert, New Haven's leaders charted new ground by incorporating revolutionary models for studying social and demographic data and using that information to help guide the physical plan for the city's growth. The visionary result is a gem of American urban planning history that became a benchmark in discussions about the shape the new American city would take in the twentieth century. This facsimile edition of the 1910 Plan for New Haven, available to general readers for the first time, includes a critical contemporary review of the century-old plan. Architectural scholar Alan Plattus and urban economist Douglas Rae contribute modern perspectives on the plan's importance to the development of both New Haven and American urbanism in the current rediscovery of urban livability and sustainability. The lessons of master urban planners like Cass and Gilbert have never been more valuable and can guide an exploration of how American urbanism has evolved and where it is going in the twenty-first century.

"Geoffrey Blodgett grounds Gilbert's personal and professional life in national and regional history, offering detailed political context for the opening decades of his career. Fascinated by architectural design since boyhood, Gilbert trained at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, toured Europe, and apprenticed with the renowned New York architectural firm McKim, Mead and White. In 1882, ready to set out on his own, he chose the familiar territory of St. Paul, his hometown, as the starting point for his career. Teaming for many years with close friend James Knox Taylor, Gilbert designed several dozen residences, churches, and urban structures in and around the Twin Cities
