- This formidable structure on the New Haven Green was designed in 1908 by architect Cass Gilbert to blend in with the churches on the green. The handsome facade with its soaring columns and enormous windows bestows upon the visitor a gracious place to read and research. Gilbert is one of the most famous architects of the early 20th-century United States. Perhaps his best-known work is the Woolworth Building in New York City.
