I. Introduction: The Idea, the Place, and the People
The international jury, chosen by
Maybeck, consisted of four major architects, from France, Germany, England,
and the United States. They were: Jean-Louis Pascal, architect of
additions to the National Library, Paris; Paul Wallot, designer of
the Reichstag Building in Berlin; Richard Norman Shaw, England's
most respected architect of the time; and Walter Cook, who practiced
in New York and was a member of the Society of Beaux-Arts Architects. In
the second round, the ailing Shaw was replaced by John Belcher, who
was becoming the major designer of monumental classical buildings in the
late Victorian (and early Edwardian) era. Jacob B. Reinstein served ex-officio
to represent the Regents.
