Description
Furness's library at Penn is a large Gothic structure of red brick, brownstone, and terra-cotta. With its separation of the reading room from the book stacks, the building was considered highly innovative in its day. Light was admitted to the book stacks through a sloping glass roof and down through translucent glass floors. Furness studied in the atelier of Richard Morris Hunt who later became a mentor for Louis Sullivan.
