Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“[one of] this fall’s highly anticipated design titles from AD100 talent, filled with remarkable spaces and expert advice. Greenberg…reflects on past residential and commercial projects around the country…” 
--Architectural Digest
 

 “This inspiring Rizzoli monograph displays 14 of Greenberg’s most recent residential projects and seven institutional and commercial undertakings for blue-chip clients including Harrison Ford, Martha Stewart and Bergdorf Goodman. This book proves the resiliency with which the Classical tradition can accommodate ever-changing contemporary needs.”
--Period Homes Magazine

“The past comes alive through Greenberg’s historically inspired buildings. The pages explore the private homes, apartments, and public buildings that Greenberg and collaborating artisans have transformed into detailed, timeless masterpieces.”
--At Home In Fairfield County Magazine

“Allan Greenberg: Classical Architect is the architect’s long-awaited monograph that showcases the skills that distinguish him from the rest—from a broad range of works and decorative expression to the thoughtful doses of detailed ornament and traditionally styled facades he’s known for.”
--Editor at Large

"Each page is saturated from edge to edge with examples of both important residential & commercial projects (including original architectural drawings), with every image transcending a quiet beauty in line & form. I can safely say that not only will this text serve as a source of pure visual joy, but one that I will forever refer to for inspiration and application of classical design elements & details, a style standard that Mr. Greenberg has championed...I highly recommend adding this comprehensive masterpiece to your literary collection."
--Duchess Fare

"An ample showcase of traditionalist ranges and styles, livened throughout by elegant experiment. The selection of photographs is excellent, and Greenberg's essays and explanatory texts are uniformly illuminating." 
--Claremont Review of Books
