Designing Tenements and Temples: The Herter Brothers
Tenements are commonplace but poorly understood. Zachary Violette's new research and fieldwork uses ornament as a way to reconsider the role of tenement architects (many of whom had deep roots in immigrant communities) in improving housing for the poor. The work for Violette's book The Decorated Tenement: How Immigrant Builders and Architects Transformed the Slum in the Gilded Age has uncovered surprising stories of architects like the Herter Brothers, who were responsible for everyday tenements buildings as well as much grander sites like Eldridge Street Synagogue.
