About this title

Synopsis:

The principles of classical architecture applied to the design of interiors, both residential and public.

A practicing architect shows how the elements that constitute the classical interior-wall and ceiling treatments, doors and windows, fireplaces, and stairs-can be composed into rooms satisfying both aesthetic and practical criteria. Historic and contemporary examples illustrate both generic and specific solutions for designers working in the classical tradition today. 25 color, 150 b&w photographs
