The Contemporary Palette: A Classicist's View
Hosted by the Southern California Chapter | 1 LU
With a perspective that values symmetry, scale, and proportion, classical architect John B. Murray is repeatedly asked to look at decades-old, often historic, spaces, modify floor plans, and revisit materials and ornamentation to create a current and fresh spatial vision that addresses the needs of contemporary life. In this talk, John will share how his firm’s classical take on spatial and compositional problem-solving has evolved and embraced fresh, current concepts for elegant living—always with a classicist’s mandate to establish living spaces that are timeless. This highly visual presentation will showcase John’s work in one of New York City’s most iconic residential buildings, as well as several of the projects featured in his recently-released second monograph Contemporary Classical Architecture John B. Murray (The Monacelli Press).
Copies of Contemporary Classical Architecture John B. Murray will be available for purchase following the lecture.
