Overview

Classical Architecture for the Twenty-First Century: An Introduction to Design

"[A] richly illustrated, carefully explained introduction to classical architecture… Highly recommended." —Choice
An exceptionally approachable, thorough, informative guide to the theory and technique of designing classical buildings, as taught by a graduate of the Ecole des Beaux-Arts, this book, generously illustrated with sketches, freehand diagrams, renderings, and photographs, gives a lively, contemporary reality to what sometimes seems a remote subject. It is a practical text for learning how to design buildings in the classical tradition today.
