In 1889 Joseph Morrill Wells, at the time an employee of the firm McKim, Mead & White (MM&W), refuses to become a partner, arguing that he could not “put his name to so much damned bad work”.1 In fact, over a twenty-five-year period, from 1879 to 1904, MM&W realizes almost a thousand buildings. This enormous production is not an accident, nor the unpredictable consequence of the lucky career of its three partners. Quantity is not by chance; it is a choice, involving a very precise commitment to both city and architecture.
