About the Author:

A native of Manchester, England, Phillip Dodd attended the prestigious Prince of Wales' Institute of Architecture in London - where he was taught by many of the architects and craftsmen featured in this book. He received a degree in architecture from his home town university, before moving to America, where he gained a Masters in Architecture from the University of Notre Dame. A well regarded expert on classical architecture and interiors, Phillip has worked for some of the most recognized residential architectural firms in America. He is a Fellow Emeritus at the Institute of Classical Architecture and Classical America, where from 2006 to 2009 he served as the jury coordinator for the annual Arthur Ross Awards. He has taught classical design at the ICA & CA and at Notre Dame, and has been a guest critic for the Interiors Department at Parson's School of Design and the Fashion Institute of Technology. Phillip was the author of New Classicists: Wadia Associates, which features a foreword by HRH The Prince of Wales, and an Introduction by Paul Gunther - the President of the ICA & CA. He was also one of the contributing authors of the Classicist: Volume VI and served on the editorial team responsible for A Decade of Art & Architecture 1992 - 2002.

Review:

The Art of Classical Details puts a magnifying glass to all of the corners, columns, and features that might otherwise go unnoticed—though their effect is still felt, even if unknowingly.
(Quest)

New York-based architect Phillip James Dodd offers design connoisseurs a veritable graduate course in architectural theory put into modern practice in The Art of Classical Details: Theory, Design, and Craftsmanship, a beautifully photographed volume devoted to residences that reflect an understanding of the role traditional forms, materials, and craft techniques play in shaping the buildings of the future. (Marjorie E. Gage New York Spaces Magazine, July/August 2013)

Those who believe that beauty lies in order, symmetry, and the characteristic geometric ornamentation of the classical style will enjoy this beautifully-illustrated volume. (Natalia Lonchyna Arlis/ Na Reviews, July/August 2013)

Dodd sets the tone for the wealth of knowledge packed in the pages to come.
(Phillip Dodd Dering Hall, December 20, 2013)

This excellent new book by Phillip James Dodd offers satisfaction in a greater variety of ways than most works on architectural design would attempt, let alone achieve. (Alvin Holm, Traditional Building October 2014)
