The Final Season of the Gilded Age

In anticipation of the major exhibition World War I Beyond the Trenches, architectural historian Barry Lewis discusses the decades leading up to America’s entry into World War I, a period during which the first generation of professionally trained American architects infused a refreshing spirit of simplicity, functionalism, and innovation into the 400-year-old Renaissance tradition of neo-classicism.

Barry Lewis is an architectural historian who specializes in European and American architecture from the 18th to 20th century.
