Building Memory: Architecture and the Great War

September 3, 2014December 7, 2014

The European journey was a mandatory component of American architectural education in the early 20th century. With the outbreak of World War I, architects confronted the realities of trench warfare and the mass destruction of the continent’s building heritage. Their collective experiences shaped how Americans commemorated the war through the erection of war monuments, scholarly investigations, and the preservation of cultural heritage. Five architects, in particular, helped shape the language of commemoration. The exhibition brings together original drawings by Paul P. Cret, Ralph Adams Cram, William J. H. Hough, Leicester B. Holland and Richard Stillwell.

Opening Reception: September 3, 4.45PM, Lower Level Atrium of the Steinman College Center
