Exhibit | 19th Century Architectural Models


This exhibit features some of the best architectural models submitted as final projects for Professor Dietrich Neumann’s Nineteenth-Century Architecture class. This course surveyed stylistic developments, new building types, and changing social conditions of architectural production for the period covering 1800 to 1900. Students were asked either to write a final paper or construct an architecturally accurate model of a building or related work that had originally been created during the 19th century.

Dates: May 15 – September 16, 2015
Location: Finn Reading Room Cases, John D. Rockefeller, Jr. Library, 10 Prospect Street, Providence
