Building Classical

Building Classical

by Richard Economakis

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This lavish volume on contemporary classical architecture is based on papers delivered at two widely publicized exhibitions held in 1992, one in Italy, the other in the United States. The former, A Vision of Europe , was endorsed by none other than Prince Charles and focused primarily on urban planning issues. The latter, highlighting individual projects of emerging classical architects, was organized by the newly formed Classical Architecture League. Fourteen essays, some illuminating, some not, address the appropriateness of classical architecture for the next century; these are interspersed with color photographs and drawings of new classical projects, both built and unbuilt. Even if one disagrees with the premise that classical architecture is the wave of the future, this book is likely to attract widespread attention. For informed readers.-- H. Ward Jandl, National Park Svc., Washington, D.C.
