Pietro Belluschi

Belluschi, Pietro (pyĕˈtrō bəlōˈskē) [key], 1899–1994, Italian-American civil engineer, designer, and architect. Belluschi served as dean and professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's school of architecture and planning (1951–65). He designed numerous residential and office buildings, including the Equitable Building in Portland, Oreg. (1948) and the Juilliard School of Music, part of the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts in New York City. The latter reveals an interesting use of dark glass.
