One of the architects involved with the design of Erchless was Philip Goodwin (who designed the original part of the Museum of Modern Art). He selected the outside statuary from France, China, Rome and Greece which forms part of the garden’s charm. The extraordinary brickwork is the result of bricks made from of the reopening of the 18th century kilns in Colonial Williamsburg.
