Thank you Tom Williams for today's YEOW!
For this week’s Y.E.O.W, I’d like to feature the Thomas Crane Library located in Quincy, Massachusetts. I have been an admirer of H. H. Richardson since I was first introduced to his work in an American Architectural History course in college. I have visited this particular building on multiple occasions and been struck each time by the sensitivity of the architects of the later additions to the original historic structure. It is an excellent example of the manipulation of space and volume, the play of light on the building’s interior, and the fine use of materials with all of the juxtaposed textures.
