The Campanile

-A A +A
1926

In the teens and twenties, architects often referred to Italian late medieval or early Renaissance churches as sources for educational buildings. These designs were usually realized in brick with stone or cast-stone trim, as in this campanile. Though more than a decade apart, Seerley Hall and the Campanile indicate what stylistic unity was being developed during the first three decades of the century.
