Summary Information

Abstract

Hugh Ferriss (1889-1962) was an architectural renderer known for his vision of the modern city and his ability to translate vast projects into dramatic but clear-cut images. Ferriss published two books: The Metropolis of Tomorrow (1929) and Power of Buildings (1953). The collection was donated to Avery Library by Ferriss' family after his death, and has been supplemented by several later additions from other sources. 363 original drawings in the collection have been photographed and digitized and can be viewed via links in the finding aid's container listing.

History / Biographical Note

Biographical / Historical

Hugh Ferriss was born in St. Louis and trained in architecture at Washington University. He moved to New York in 1912 and lived and worked in the city for the remainder of his life. Ferriss worked briefly as an architect for Cass Gilbert before venturing into an independent practice as an architectural renderer in 1915.

Ferriss specialized in drawings visualizing future buildings and cities. He was one of the most sought-after architectural renderers in the first half of the 20th century. Outside his work as an architectural renderer, Ferriss was on the United Nations headquarters planning staff from 1947 to 1950 and served as a member of the New York City Art Commission from 1950 to 1953.

Ferriss died of cancer on January 28, 1962 at New York City's Presbyterian Hospital.
