Abstract:
This session will be dedicated to M. K. (Mary Krumboltz) Hurd, The Woman Who Formed Concrete. Architectural concrete and ACI pioneer John J. Earley left a legacy of distinctive work throughout the United States, but nowhere more than in Washington, DC. These sessions will present some of the outstanding Earley Studio projects in the nation’s capital and other parts of the country. The history of John J. Earley’s innovation will highlight distinctive features at Meridian Hill Park, the Shrine of the Sacred Heart, the Polychrome Houses, and the Franciscan Monastery of the Holy Land in America. These spectacular projects illustrate the revolutionary work done in concrete nearly 100 years ago. You will be amazed by concrete’s resilience and aesthetic durability.
