A practical text for learning how to design buildings in the classical tradition today. An exceptionally approachable, thorough, informative guide to the theory and technique of designing classical buildings, as taught by a graduate of the École des Beaux-Arts. Generously illustrated with sketches, freehand diagrams, renderings, and photographs, this book gives a lively, contemporary reality to what sometimes seems a remote subject. 200 photographs and line drawings.
