Living architecture : a biography of H.H. Richardson by James F O'Gorman ( Book )
2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 681 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Fascinating, important, and lushly illustrated, Living Architecture is the first biography of nineteenth-century America's greatest architect and the first full-color treatment of his rich and marvelous work. Written by James F. O'Gorman, the leading Richardson scholar, and photographed by Cervin Robinson, this compelling volume situates the architect's life and work within the shifting context of post-Civil War society. As a member of that generation of giants who brought American culture to maturity in the 1870s, Richardson, like Winslow Homer, Mark Twain, and Emily Dickinson, created an aesthetic distinct from its European origins, an architecture rooted in the American land and expressive of the new American urban forms

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"One natural outcome of the educational reform movement of the 1840s was the growth of the American public library. Though the first public libraries were housed in post offices and town halls, even in local drug stores, growing book collections soon forced cities and towns to recognize the need for larger, more appropriate buildings, some 450 of which were built in the latter half of the nineteenth century. The most important and influential architect of the era was Henry Hobson Richardson (1838-1886), perhaps best known for his design of Boston's Trinity Church."--Jacket

H.H. Richardson the architect, his peers, and their era by Maureen Meister ( Book )
2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In this book leading scholars reconsider the significance of the late nineteenth-century American architect Henry Hobson Richardson, perhaps best known for his design of Boston's Trinity Church. Against the long-held view of Richardson as an isolated and proto-modernist genius, they argue for a broader understanding of his work within the context of his times. Viewed this way, Richardson becomes a more challenging figure - an architect who in many ways was shaped by and was consistent with his era, even as he dominated it. In addition to shedding new light on the architect, the book shows how much Richardson scholarship has changed and matured over the course of a century."--Jacket
