Day trip to BRYN ATHYN HISTORIC DISTRICT
mar. 7 mai à 15:00
This trip will take an entire day. We'll travel together to the estate of plate glass magnate, John Pitcairn, Jr., who in 1883 founded Pittsburgh Plate Glass, a Fortune 500 company. Pitcairn hired the well-respected New York architectural partnership of John Merven Carrère and Thomas Hastings (best known to us for their Beaux-Arts-style turn-of-the-century main branch of the New York Public Library) to design his opulent mansion. While they came from very different backgrounds— Carrère was born in Rio de Janeiro, the son of a wealthy Brazilian coffee trader, while Hastings came from a family of Presbyterian ministers—they both studied at the renowned École nationale supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris and apprenticed at McKim, Mead, and White, the starchitects of their day. more than 300 projects. Travel arrangements and costs to be determined.
