Featuring essays written by a range of skilled contemporary classicists as well as projects by top UK and US Classical architects, the book is the definitive guide to the world of neo-Classical architectural detailing.
In the follow-up to the critically acclaimed 'The Art of Classical Details,' Phillip James Dodd continues his look at some of the finest examples of contemporary classical architecture in Great Britain and the United States, while also examining how collaboration is the key to their successful design.
In reality, collaborative relationships are rare, especially amongst designers, where each is often focused on their own individual objectives and unable to transcend their own egos.
Often used as a catch phase, but not often realised, true collaboration requires an understanding - and an appreciation - of the role that all parties play in the design and construction of a home. 'An Ideal Collaboration' includes the work of some of the most notable names in contemporary residential design. Architects, decorators, landscape designers, consultants, builders, craftsmen, artists and vendors, all address the design process and the pivotal role that collaboration plays in creating cohesive timeless designs. AUTHOR: A native of Manchester, England, Phillip James Dodd attended the prestigious Prince of Wales' Institute of Architecture in London - where he was taught by many of the architects featured in this book.
