Henry Hobson Richardson (1838-1886) was a prominent architect in the United States of America during the 19th century. Born on a plantation in St. James Parish, Lousiana, he would later attend Harvard University and the famed Ecole des Beaux Arts. His education mixed with his interest in medieval architecture by William Morris, would later be shaped into his famous "Richardsonian Romanesque" Style defined by polychromy, rough cut stone, heavy arches and massive towers. Some of his works include Trinity Church of Boston, Sever Hall, and the Allegheny County Courthouse.
