Julian Abele : Architect and the Beaux Arts, Hardback Book

Julian Abele : Architect and the Beaux Arts Hardback

Part of the Minorities in Architecture series


Julian Abele, Architect and the Beaux Arts uncovers the life of one of the first beaux arts trained African American architects.

Overcoming racial segregation at the beginning of the twentieth century, Abele received his architecture degree from the University of Pennsylvania in 1902.

Wilson traces Abele's progress as he went on to become the most formally educated architect in America at that time.

Abele later contributed to the architectural history of America by designing over 200 buildings throughout his career including the Widener Memorial Library (1913) at Harvard University and the Free Library of Philadelphia (1917).

Architectural history is a valuable resource for those studying architecture.

As such this book is beneficial for academics and students of architecture and architectural historians with a particular interest in minority discussions.
