About this title

Synopsis:

Features the work of one of the most influential architects of the new Classical movement in the United States and Europe.

From the Inside Flap:

Architectural Monographs No 39 Allan Greenberg ‘The classical language of architecture is always modern because it is rooted in the physiology and psychology of the individual human being. In this context, to be modern means more than responding to some particular circumstances of the moment — that is simply being fashionable. To be truly modern means finding the dynamic balance between eternal human values and the specific demands of the present. Classical architecture provides the means to achieve this balance because it is the most comprehensive architectural language that human beings have yet developed.’ Allan Greenberg’s words affirm the continuing significance of classical architecture in our contemporary way of life. His works, in their scope and individuality, demonstrate how successfully the classical language of architecture responds to present-day building needs. This monograph presents a selection of projects that Allan Greenberg has produced over the last twenty years. It spans the range of his work, from private residences to public, academic, and religious buildings, and from commercial architecture to pieces of furniture. Essays by Greenberg and the architectural historian Carroll William Westfall give a comprehensive introduction to the thought that lies behind the completed designs. ‘Greenberg’s works ... embody joyous, sensuous form, an underlying coherence of formal organization, and a wide range of references made fresh with intelligible and intelligent departures from expectations. In all his works a robustness pervades an artful distillation and inventive expansion of the broad traditions of classical architecture.’ From the foreword by Carroll William Westfall The highly successful Architectural Monographs series focuses on individuals of international stature who have been influential in practice and in education. Each monograph is designed to reflect the style of the architect featured, providing an invaluable record of the work and an important source book for further study.
