The building was completed in 1930 by architect Paul Philippe Cret utilizing his own brand of Classicism and Art Deco.  The interiors are a mélange of Tudor recreations and strict classicism and hold many literary treasures.  Architect Alexander Trowbridge was a consulting architect and helped Cret with many of the details including decorative reliefs with scenes from Shakespeare’s works.
