Point|Counterpoint: A Conversation With Haviland, Tricia Stuth, Ted Shelton Apr 2006

Point|Counterpoint: A Conversation With Haviland, Tricia Stuth, Ted Shelton

Ted Shelton, FAIA

Point–Counterpoint is an installation at Eastern State Penitentiary National Historic Landmark in Philadelphia. Operational from 1830 to 1971, the prison is now a museum.
