Large format. Publisher's description: Since the beginnings of their architectural practice in 1992, William Curtis and Russell Windham have dedicated their work to the principle that classical architecture, in its best sense, should embody the same rigor, the same attention to surroundings, and the same thoughtful approach to design theory that fuels the most forward-looking styles and movements. In this graciously appointed book, Curtis and Windham reflect on more than two decades of the practice of classical contemporary architecture, providing an expansive view of eighteen representative projects. Opening with a contextualizing introduction by esteemed architectural historian Stephen Fox, A Vision of Place documents the authors' quiet assertion that carefully considered work performed along traditional lines can be, in its own way, groundbreaking. Curtis and Windham demonstrate the versatility of classical ideals and methods for instilling a contemporary resonance of place.
