Abstract:

"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.
