Tjaden Hall

The pioneering Olive Tjaden. by Michael White

My newest commission is for a house designed by Olive Tjaden, who graduated from the Cornell Architecture College in 1925, at the age of 19. She was the first woman member of the American Institute of Architects, and designed 400 houses in Garden City alone. This is Tjaden Hall at Cornell, its art building, a place where I spent a couple thousand hours, I guess, and home to her archives.
