"Before and After the End of Time: Architecture and the Year 1000"
2000-08-26 until 2000-12-31
Fogg Museum, Harvard
Cambridge, MA, USA

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 twelfth-century architectural 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.
