    William Morgan (Author), Prof Robert McCarter (Author)
William Morgan is a fundamental modernist whose work has for 40 years remained absolutely true to the principles of modern architecture. Each of Morgan's designs can therefore be said to have a multitude of 'precedents' from throughout time, and not one in particular. For Morgan, architecture has integrity when it is inextricably anchored to its place and time, while simultaneously being ordered by principles both universal and timeless. These attributes allow us to characterize his architecture as being at once ancient and modern. The depth of Morgan's historical grounding, derived from first-hand experiences documenting ancient sites, is unequaled among his practising peers, being more typical of professional archeologists and architectural historians. William Morgan began his architectural education at Harvard in 1948. In recognition of Morgan's record of excellence in architectural design, the American Institute of Architects elevated him to Fellowship in 1975, and shortly thereafter he was elected Chairman of the AIA Committee on Design.
