Esherick’s Studio is remarkable for the degree to which nearly every surface and feature was fashioned by him or one of his collaborating craftsmen. There are, however, a few manufactured, off-the-shelf elements like faucets, switches, receptacles – and windows. While the Studio includes examples of both shop-made wood windows and others salvaged from industrial buildings, many of the windows Esherick chose are manufactured Pella casement windows. In this informal 20-minute talk, WEM Building Preservation Director Andrew Gustine will share his insights on Esherick’s preferred window for much of the Studio. We’ll also explore a bit of the history of window-making in the early 20th century, and discuss how Esherick’s choice of windows was both avant-garde and pragmatic.
