The Architecture of Delano & Aldrich
By Peter Pennoyer & Anne Walker
The firm of Delano & Aldrich occupied a central place in the United States during the first half of the twentieth century, substantially shaping the architectural climate of the period. The grand country estates, striking townhouses and club buildings, churches, schools, and public buildings designed by William Adams Delano (1874–1960) and Chester Aldrich (1871–1940) are exceptional examples of architectural creativity and originality.
Illustrated with stunning color photographs taken expressly for the book and many historic photographs, plans, and drawings in rich duotone, The Architecture of Delano & Aldrich is the first book to give an account of the architects’ backgrounds and beginnings and the scope of their practice, setting the firm’s work within the social and architectural context of the day. A catalogue raisonné, employee roster, and list of buildings now serving as museums are also included, making this book the definitive source about a practice whose work forms a lasting part of the American landscape.
