6:30 PM Lecture and Book Signing

Elizabeth Meredith Dowling is Professor Emerita of Architecture at the Georgia Institute of Technology.  Her research continues to involve currently practicing classical and traditional designers and an associated investigation into the growing interest in all forms of Eclectic design from Gothic churches to Renaissance villas. In recognition of her instruction in classical architecture, she received the Arthur Ross Award in the field of education in 2001.

About Dr. Dowling’s newest book: “Classical design employs a rich language developed across twenty-five centuries and many cultures. It is a language of details understood worldwide, with its powerful vocabulary of subtle nuance and inflection. Classical Interiors: Historical and Contemporary, a spectacular presentation of the myriad varieties of classical forms, demonstrates the enduring lessons of traditional interiors for designers and architects today.

Extensively illustrated essays devoted to the development of classical design, from its ancient sources through its revivals from the seventeenth century to the present day, are written by noted historians David Watkin and Carol A. Hrvol Flores, and architect and designer Richard Sammons. Portfolios of contemporary projects present the award-winning work of Juan Pablo Molyneux, Studio Peregalli, Quinlan & Francis Terry, Fairfax & Sammons, Gil Schafer, Historical Concepts, Ferguson & Shamamian, Allan Greenberg, Robert A. M. Stern, and many others. Classical Interiors: Historical and Contemporary is the authoritative survey of the best of classical design.” (from Amazon book description via the publisher).
