The Search for a Lost Architect

The architects who constructed Columbia High School gave us a building that will serve us well for many, many years to come. It is solid, it is comfortable, it is clean and warm and it maintains an educational outlook that is both modern and classic. I don’t think we can ask for much more from our buildings. — American School & University, 1978

Montrose School Gets Patched

September 2nd, 2009 · No Comments · Architecture, Articles

Marcia Worth of Patch, a local community portal, has written a nice piece on Montrose School in South Orange, New Jersey.

“The Montrose school yard boasts what I consider to be the most beautiful birch tree in town. It’s also a fine tree for climbing, according to my neighbor, who indicated a branch far from the ground. There, she recalled, pointing at a scratch I could barely see, were her sons’ initials, carved into the tree one day at recess.”

Montrose is a rather unique design for the town and a sentimental favorite of mine.
