Pratt Institute (Brooklyn, New York, New York, United States)
The Main Building is a designated New York City Landmark and part of the Pratt Institute Historic District. It was designed by Lamb and Rich, an architectural firm favored by the Pratt family, and was the first structure erected for Pratt Institute. It was soon joined by the Trade School Building (Student Union) and the Mechanic Arts Building (East Hall), the other two buildings of the original Pratt Institute complex. Constructed in red brick in the Romanesque Revival style, the building has a large central clock tower and a portico that was added in 1895. The building was damaged by fire in 1910 and again in 2013. The Main Building originally contained the library, a museum, the Women's Department, Art Department, and Cooking Department; today it houses administrative offices, classrooms, and studios.
