Gould Memorial Library
Gould Memorial Library
Bronx Community College, University Heights, Bronx Dramatically sited on the heights overlooking the Harlem River, Harlem Flats, and the New Jersey Palisades beyond, the Gould Memorial Library and the related buildings of the former New York University campus stand as one of the triumphs of late nineteenth-century American architecture. Designed at a time when many institutions of higher learning were expanding their facilities, the library is a monument to two great men—architect Stanford White and chancellor Henry MacCracken.' The Gould Memorial Library is an imposing, classically-inspired structure constructed of yellow Roman brick with limestone and terra-cotta trim. The use of these materials serves to modulate the building's monumental quality and link it to the surrounding landscape. The restrained exterior stands in vivid contrast to the rich interior with its dramatic flow of spaces and its sumptuous stone and marble detailing. The Gould Memorial Library has long been recognized as among the supreme examples of Stanford White's work. The most fitting comment on the building's architectural importance has come, not from architectural critics or the general public, but from White's peers who in 1919 chose the library as the site for the Stanford White Memorial. Although no longer used as a library, the building retains its original configuration and is a major monument of the former New York University campus. Description The stairhall, administrative offices, and central reading room of the Gould Memorial Library form one of the great surviving interiors dating from the period of American architectural history that has come to be known as the American Renaissance. The interior spaces are among the finest designs of Stanford White and reflect his adherence to scientific eclecticism— "the assemblage of pieces from the create harmonious wholes.At this building White combined forms and ideas from the Roman Pantheon and from Renaissance palaces to create an original and highly sophisticated work of art. The library is entered through an exterior portico of six Corinthian columns and a pair of bronze doors. 7 Beyond the doors the visitor stands in a small vestibule that is flanked by bronze lamp standards. The main stairway rises directly in front and subsidiary staircases leading to the basement chapel are set on either side. The barrel-vaulted side stairways, with their handsome railings, lead to a foyer and hallway set in front of the chapel. From the vestibule one gains a glimpse of the reading room located at the end of the grand staircase. A sense of the polychromatic richness of the interior is established immediately upon entering the building by the use of stained-glass windows and bands of red, yellow, black, and white mosaic tile for the floor. The vestibule ceiling is in the form of a shallow dome and forms the first of a progression of domes that culminates in the dome of the reading room. A handsome revolving door has been placed within the vestibule. The short vestibule leads directly to the lower landing of the staircase. This area also has a mosaic floor. Heavy wooden doors on either side lead to offices. From .this landing rise the twenty-four Tennessee-marble steps of the barrel-vaulted stair hall. The stairway is modeled after Renaissance prototypes referred to by White in answer to a critical letter of MacCracken's: I am sure that the staircase as it is designed is all right... I do not see how it will be possible to treat it any other way____Certainly neither the Gold Staircase (of the Ducal Palace) nor the Vatican Staircase look like tunnels, and the New York University one will look far less so, as it is very much more lofty and very much shorter. The staircase is an extremely successful part of the design, symbolically serving as the stairway to knowledge. It is only upon reaching the top of the stairs, or after ascending the stairway to knowledge, that the dome of the reading room (the crown of the storehouse of knowledge) begins to come into sight. The stairway is articulated by two pairs of stone pilast.ers--one pair at the bottom and one pair towards the top of the steps. The middle pilasters support bronze torcheres capped by glass globes. The lower two-thirds of the stairway walls are faced with Portland stone. A band embellished with a Vitruvian scroll pattern separates the stone walls from panels of highly-polished, pale-yellow, Cippolini marble. Above these panels is an entablature that supports a coffered barrel vault. The upper stairway landing is similar in form to the lower landing and vestibule, with a mosaic floor, bronze lamps, and a shallow dome. In the center of the dome is a roundel of green Tiffany stained glass from which hangs a glass globe lamp. The shallow arms of this landing continue the decorative pattern of the stairway-Portland stone walls topped by Cippolini marble panels. Lunettes with round niches that were intended to hous
Saenger Theatre
Saenger Theatre
History of the Movie Palace In the late-19th Century, silent moving pictures were viewed in small “nickelodeons.” In 1910, the first large “palatial” theater opened in Paris, France. Sound arrived in 1927 and in the same year the magnificent “Roxy” opened in New York City - - its name to become synonymous with the movie-palace phenomenon. By 1929 and the consolidation of the industry in giant film companies, the formula for the movie palace had been established. With a proscenium to help the still skeptical accept the new medium, these palaces were designed to accommodate both live performances and film. To qualify as a movie palace, a structure had to have at least 1,000 seats, a stage with fly loft, a balcony, dressing rooms, and an orchestra pit. The architectural styles of these palaces evoked the fantastic images of romantic, far-away places: the Mediterranean, the Byzantine Empire, Mayan and Aztec Mexico and Central America, and Egypt, among others. History of the Saenger As a crown jewel of Hattiesburg and part of the Saenger Amusement Company, the 1000-seat movie palace was one of 7 Saenger Theatres built and operated throughout the South by the Saenger brothers, Abe and Julian. Designed by New Orleans architect Emile Weile, the Saenger Theater is one of Mississippi’s 2 examples of the movie-palace type. The Saenger Theater has characteristics typical of the Neo-Classical Revival Style and Art Deco Style, including Mayan-inspired elements. Built in 1929, the Saenger was built as a venue to show silent movies. It was constructed at a time when theaters were among the first public structures to benefit from “air conditioning” systems. The theatre boasts a 778-pipe Robert Morton Pipe Organ which was designed specifically for the Saenger’s acoustics. It is one of the only Robert Morton organs in the United States still in its original position. Placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1979 and renovated in 2000, the Hattiesburg Saenger Theatre sits polished and ready to host a number of cultural events. The Saenger Theatre opened on Thanksgiving Day, 1929, to much fanfare. The admission charged was $.06 for children. One of the outstanding features was an organ, which was played before the beginning of a movie, and then between shows. Theatre organ sound is different from the “regular” organ sound, and today it still brings instant memories to those who heard it in the earlier years. The chandelier was something to behold in the small city of Hattiesburg and surrounding area. Some mothers admonished their children not to sit under the chandelier, as it might fall! For many years, feature movies often changed three times a week: one on Monday and Tuesday, another on Wednesday and Thursday, another on Friday and Saturday. Although there were a number of other “picture shows” in Hattiesburg (the Rose, Lomo, Buck and Strand, to name four), the Saenger brought the most popular and first-run movies to town, and was the “elite” movie house. During the 1940's the theatre sought to open on Sundays (in violation of Sunday Blue Laws) and caused quite a stir. A compromise was soon reached, and movies were shown from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m., so as not to impinge on “church hours.’ The movie menu included “coming attractions,” advertisements, sing-alongs, cartoons and organ recitals. One of the “added attractions” was Bank Night, when a “door prize” was offered, sometimes as much as $50.00. The winner had to be present to win. The theatre did not empty out between shows, and many would stay through several showings, especially on Saturdays when a first-run Western (“Horse Opera”) was shown. The Saenger closed in the late 1960's, and was given to the City. Some activity was had in the building for a number of years. Mayor Bobby Chain, in the early 1980's, with limited funds available, did an admirable renovation project, located the original organ in private ownership in Meridian, had it repaired, and it is still played today. In 2000, a 3.75 million dollar renovation was completed, restoring the Saenger Theater much to its original grandeur. The Saenger Theater is a focal point for many more activities, and will surely draw a greater number of people to Downtown.
