Generating context: the practice of Perry Dean Rogers/Partners architects
Perry Dean Rogers is long-established architectural firm based in Boston, New England, a place where the European influences in America are most clearly to be seen. Their architecture is innovative, yet sensitively responds to the needs of the clients and the context within which it is placed. Founded in 1923, the firm has made a name for itself with its numerous buildings for educational institutions. In this volume, the most significant works of Perry Dean Rogers will be thematically examined and accompanied by copious illustrations. Amongst the works included are the extensions for the renowned universities of Yale and Harvard in New Haven and Cambridge, a new library for the College of Wooster, Ohio, a library for the university of Maryland, Baltimore and a visual arts center at the Groton School in Massachusetts. Because of their considerable experience in constructing university buildings, Perry Dean Rogers are currently designing an entire college campus - the masterplan and the individual buildings -- for the Franklin W. Olin College of Engineering in Needham, Massachusetts.
