An Alternate View

Pictured above is a conceptual drawing for the University of Oregon’s Medical School produced by Lawrence and Holford Associates and Architects (a little guesswork on the names was required as the detail when zooming starts to degrade). The drawing is undated, however according to the Wikipedia article on Ellis F. Lawrence, he was partnered with Holford between 1913 and 1928, which gives us a nice date-range for the production of the design. Lawrence was known for founding and being the first dean of the University of Oregon’s School of Architecture and Allied Arts from 1914 until his death. His works, which one can still find in Eugene, OR, include the Knight Library and the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art.
