Overview

Harrie Thomas Lindeberg (1879�1959) was one of America�s most prominent 20th-century domestic architects. He designed refined country houses throughout the United States for an elite clientele, and his name became synonymous with the rich man�s country estate. Royal Cortissoz, in his introduction, cited Lindeberg�s distinctive artistic personality as a key to his success, and put him on a par with Henry Bacon, Charles McKim, Charles Platt, John Russell Pope, and Stanford White.

Lindeberg was one of a large group of American architects who trained in the offices of McKim, Mead and White. Born in New Jersey, he served as an assistant to Stanford White on prestigious domestic commissions prior to White�s death in 1906. Shortly thereafter he formed a partnership with his colleague Lewis Colt Albro and quickly became a sought-after designer of rustic country houses for the American upper class. His style was urbane, refined and elegant, yet was always touched with a hint of idiosyncratic wit, much like that of his English contemporary, Edwin Lutyens. His 1940 monograph is a rare and beautiful example of the folio retrospetives that chronicled the careers of the leading domestic architects of the early 20th century. Virtually all of his major commissions are represented here in large-format photographs and plans.
