The Crow-Crocker House was executed entirely under Henry Greene’s direction. The house, originally designed for Dr. S. S. Crow with garden and outbuilding additions for Edward S. Crocker, shows the younger brother’s mature ability. The single-story structure is arranged around a narrow courtyard in a U-shaped plan whose open end stands away from the street. One wing of the plan is devoted to the service functions of the house, the opposite wing to family bedrooms. The link between the two is devoted to living room and dining room. Glazed doors opposite the entry provide garden views beyond the courtyard from which light floods into the north wing through a continuous wall of casement windows that open into the hallway serving the bedroom chambers.
The Crow house and Crocker gardens are Henry’s early triumph, giving him the confidence to sustain increasing independent design work in future years.
Yasuhiro Ishimoto: Bilingual Photography
and the Architecture of Greene & Greene

Photographs made by Japanese-American photographer Yasuhiro Ishimoto (1921–2012) of architecture by early 20th-century designers Charles Sumner Greene and Henry Mather Greene will be on public view for the first time in the United States in this focused loan exhibition. Ishimoto turned his lens toward the Greenes’ work in 1974, producing a suite of images for the Japanese design magazine Approach. Forty-six sumptuous black-and-white photographs printed by the artist and on loan from the Museum of Art, Kochi, in Japan will showcase the Approach magazine commission along with six seminal photographs that Ishimoto made of the 17th-century Katsura Imperial Villa in Japan in 1954. “Yasuhiro Ishimoto: Bilingual Photography and the Architecture of Greene & Greene” coincides with the reopening of a refreshed permanent display of Greene & Greene furniture nearby in the gallery.
Please note: This exhibition requires admission to the Huntington Library, Art Collections and Botanical Gardens. Please refer to the Huntington’s site for admission pricing and hours.
