Summary
"Through this presentation of fifteen residences, John B. Murray demonstrates the successful juxtaposition of classical elements in a contemporary context. John B. Murray is a recognized leader in adapting classical design principles for contemporary life, creating elegant and gracious urban and country residences. His firm, John B. Murray Architect, is committed to a timeless aesthetic, a simplicity of form, and superb craftsmanship enriched by an inventive interpretation of classical details. In Contemporary Classical Architecture, Murray reveals an extraordinary mastery of the classical vocabulary and a sensitivity to proportion and scale. Within that framework, he inserts the comforts of contemporary living in a way that is seamless and completely logical. The projects range from Fifth Avenue apartments with breathtaking terraces and Central Park views to a rambling shingle style house in the Hamptons and a pristine neoclassical retreat in Dutchess County to the restoration of the President's House at a New England university."--Publisher's description
