Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the early twentieth century—a time when modernism was favored over classicism, and architectural iconoclasm over tradition—the commissions of Ralph Adams Cram were inspired by elegant practicality, mystical philosophies, and a keen sense of history and place. Among them were such religious masterpieces as St. John the Divine in New York City, the chapel at West Point, and campus architecture at Princeton.

Book News Annotation:

In this volume Anthony, the president of the firm founded by architect Ralph Adams Cram in 1889, surveys Cram's life and career. Approximately 300 b&w photographs depict the architect's achievements, which vary greatly in function (religious, educational, commercial) and style (gothic, renaissance, Tudor, and Arts and Crafts, to name a few). Well-known buildings include the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York City, and the Post Headquarters at the US Military Academy at West Point. Some floor plans are included.
