"It is difficult to see the White House entirely as a piece if architecture. Time and occupants with different needs have altered it in many ways. However, the White House image, known to the world, is Hoban’s entirely. He took up this part of George Washington’s burden and designed and finished on time the first of the nation’s public buildings in the new city."
