23 Although the statement was made in reference to an arboreal problem described by Theodate, it clearly had wider implications. Two years later she was ready to tackle a much larger project in a retrospective vein—her parents’ house up the hill. 24 Hill-Stead was created in the bucolic Connecticut River Valley as a foil to the Pope family’s urban setting in Cleveland. The style of the Euclid Avenue home stood in contrast to that of Hill-Stead. The Boston architect William Ralph Emerson (1833– 1917) designed the former in 1883, while at the peak of his career.
H. Richardson also said he could design in this fashion. In his maturity he never drew anything other than thumbnail sketches— 54 Hill-Stead and Its Architect “conceptual diagrams,” as his biographer (and later, friend of Theodate) Marianna Van Rensselaer, called them. These were translated into architectural graphics by Richardson’s assistants, who then signed the drawings with his name. 17 An architect mentally formulates a design and then may draw it or may tell an assistant to draw it: in either case the person conceiving is the designer.
She later added to it a second historic building she called “The Gundy,” thus creating an additive composition of colonial work and anticipating on a small scale her approach to the massing of Hill-Stead. Such hands-on experience equals, if not exceeds, academic training. Theodate was aided in this project, first by Henry Hall Mason, a local builder-architect who, as we have seen, would later work at Hill-Stead, and then by the architect Melvin H. Hapgood of Hartford, who designed in the “Old Colonial” style.
