The Shutze Driving Tours from the Institute of Classical Architecture Classical America Southeast Chapter are missing.
Atlanta's fastest growth came in the suburban age, the age of edge cities.We don't have blocks and blocks of beautiful turn of the century town-homes and commercial buildings.We do have some! Many have connections to a Atlanta's own extraordinarily talented and productive Philip Trammell Shutze. So in anticipation of the 2010 Shutze Awards (here's my post about the 2009 awards), I'm blogging about the many Shutze structures that are a regular part of my life. Taking a close look has been quite a joy.
I recommend American Classicist: The Architecture of Philip Trammell Shutze by Elizabeth Meredith Dowling, Rizzoli 1989. This is a scholarly book that is quite good on the coffee table.
