From his early years as a student through his final years at Rockefeller Center, Hood remained committed to architecture that suited the needs of his clients in a rational but distinctive way.
Hood firmly believed that architecture was both an art and a business. Beauty and utility were one and the same. The projects included in this exhibition, both built and unbuilt, represent Hood’s contribution to what is perhaps the most modern, most American building type: the skyscraper.
