Editorial Reviews

Boston Globe

Partly because it has never had...a single stylistic motif, Harvard has become a living museum of almost every trend in the history of American architecture. [This] is the fullest account yet written of Harvard's buildings...an indispensable narrative and reference.
— Robert Campbell

New England Quarterly

All [Bunting's] strengths are here, most notably his insistence on studying architecture in the broadest cultural and historical context...Floyd has augmented the late Bainbridge Bunting's manuscript...with her own considerable scholarly knowledge of the subject...The results are exceptional.
— Douglass Shand-Tucci
