"Before and After the End of Time: Architecture
and the Year 1000"
2000-08-26 until 2000-12-31
Fogg Museum, Harvard
Organized by Christine Smith,
Marion and Robert Weinberg
Professor of Architectural History
at Harvard's Graduate School of
Design, this exhibition looks at the
beginning of Romanesque
architecture in Western Europe
shortly after the year 1000 A.D.
This revolutionary period in
Christian architecture resulted
from the millennial expectation of
the coming of the City of God on
earth. Heavenly building stones –
gems such as emerald and lapis
lazuli – will be on view along with
fragments and sculptures from
France and Spain.
Harvard's contribution to the rediscovery of this moment in
architectural history will also be addressed in the exhibition.
Photographs and drawings by archeologist-professors A. Kinsgley
Porter and Kenneth J. Connant, who conducted many of the
excavations that brought to light the remains of early Romanesque
churches and monasteries, and by Harvard graduate Henry Hobson
Richardson, who based his mature architectural style on surviving
Romanesque structures he studied in Europe, will also be presented.
