The Herbst Portico


#100aX12 - Charlotte Fiorito photograph, 1993.

The Herbst Portico, added onto the front of Cowell Hall after the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake. Our investigation of the Academy's structures indicated that we should brace the supporting beams in the entrance, and we combined this with the planned enclosure of the portico.
