The ICAA Rocky Mountain Chapter invites you to an evening

with John Simpson


Wednesday August 2nd
6:00 PM Hors d’oeuvres
6:30 PM Lecture and Book Signing

"London-based architect John Simpson is one of the world’s leading practitioners of New Classicism, a contemporary architecture movement that continues the practice of classical and traditional architecture, and embraces the virtues of durability, functionality, and beauty. His design ethos revolves around the notion that architecture is a public art, where each facade forms the character and shape of the public realm—the streets, the squares, and the major civic spaces that we use—creating an architectural language that is recognizable and which shapes our collective cultural experience.

The Architecture of John Simpson: The Timeless Language of Classicism showcases more than thirty diverse projects, each of which highlights the firm’s commitment to creating architecture and spaces that are both functional and of the moment. Simpson’s architecture is built to last, to be beautiful, and to ensure the comfort and ease of those who experience it, be it the Queen’s Gallery at Buckingham Palace or an apartment in a historic building in New York. The work shown here ranges from smallscale residential and apartment designs, to country house, town house, and large-scale institutional projects. Featured schemes include a new academic quadrangle at Eton College, the new school of architecture at the University of Notre Dame, rooms at Kensington Palace, the Stanhope Hotel renovation in New York, town houses in London’s Belgravia and Chelsea, and much more." - © The Architecture of John Simpson: The Timeless Language of Classicism by David Watkin, Rizzoli New York, 2016.
