Architects' bookshelf at Historical Concepts
We toured Historical Concepts' Glenwood Park studio yesterday. (That would be "Historical Concepts Architects, Planners and Place-Makers.")
The ICAA put it on. (That would be the Southeast Chapter of the for Classical Architecture and Art.)
Honestly, I think they do these tours just for me.
David VanGroningen (blue shirt) and Clay Rokicki (@clayrokicki gesturing with his left arm) spent an hour or so showing us around while the rest of the architects kept right on working.
The books caught my eye, Classic Cracker tops this stack.
Post-its mark the right pages.
These books were helping a big house look less intimidating.
I met Peter Pennoyer at another ICAA event. Cool.
There is a bit from those books in these renderings.
The iPad is atop Palladio in Paul Knight's right-hand stack. (@PaulLKnight)
There are a couple of oldies in Paul's left stack and he pulled them down to show me.
The Practical Exemplar of Architecture (1907) by Sir Mervyn Edmund Macartney, 1853-1932 is in several volumes. It has pictures with measured drawings.
American Landscape Architecture, Edited by P.H. Elwood, Jr is from 1924.
We had a big time. Thanks to David, Clay, Historical Concepts, ICAA and fellow tourists.
