"Henri Labrouste: Structure Brought to Light"

Friday May 3 2013 10:30 - 20:00
Labrouste (1801–75) pioneered the use of glass and iron to create soaring, light-filled, cathedral-like interiors, like the ones found in his two great libraries, the Bibliothèque Sainte-Geneviève and the Bibliothèque Nationale, both in Paris. This show, which includes some 200 objects—drawings, watercolors, photographs, films and architectural models—is the first ever U.S. survey devoted to the 19th-century French architect.
