The more I see buildings, the more I wonder about them! This is not only a library, but also a workplace. The original name of the building is “The William Morris Hunt Memorial Library,” and is located in the Back Bay, across Symphony Hall. I should say that, before I dug up information on it, I very much enjoyed sketching this building! Richard Morris Hunt was an American architect of the nineteenth century. Most importantly, He helped sculpt the face of New York City, including designs for the façade and Great Hall of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, in addition to the pedestal of the Statue of Liberty. I did not realize that the architect of the building could help to shape the city’s appearance!
