More About This Book

Overview

Fine addition to the IMAGES' fabled New Classicists series Showcase of the extraordinary range of houses designed by the firm across the last 20 years One of the world's most respected architects in the New Classicist movement in the US Exquisite French, Georgian, Federal, Spanish, Greek revival and French colonial houses are masterfully photographed in sepia and full color Award-winning architect Ken Tate is widely recognized for his intuitive approach to traditional architecture. His houses come from a place of soul, as well as a deep understanding of human nature and the history of architecture. In this book, nine dwellings ranging in influence from Norman farmhouses, Spanish estancias, Mediterranean villas, and Federal and Greek Revival houses reveal the breadth of his skilll and imagination. While some of these offer faithful representations of historic styles, others marry elements from several periods to give the impression that they grew and changed over time. By using authentic materials including custom-quarried stone, antique wooden beams, and natural plaster, and employing traditional craftsmanship ranging from mortis-and-tendon carpentry to English milled paneling, tate creates houses that seem to have been lived in and loved for generations. With an introduction by Southern architecture expert Susan Sully, excerpts from the work of Tate's favourite writers including Octavio Paz and Jorge Borges, evocative essays and interviews with the architect, this book is an illuminating expression of Tate's Classical Journey.
