Vertner Woodson Tandy

This week in celebration of Black History Month, we recognize Vertner Woodson Tandy, an influential architect known for his grandiose and ornate designs. He was the first Black architect to become a registered architect in the state of New York, as well as one of the first Black member of the AIA. He is noted for his work on The St. Phillip's Episcopal Church in Harlem, as well as Villa Lewaro in Irvington, New York, his most notable work.
