Bapst Library – Boston College // 1922

Completed in 1928, the Boston College Library is believed to have been designed after the Merton Tower in Oxford, England, and I definitely see the resemblance. The buildings was the third constructed on the Boston College Chestnut Hill Campus, all three by Charles Maginnis, and features some hidden architectural gems from little carvings of authors and academics on the exterior to the jaw-dropping reading room.
