 Author Phillip James Dodd discussed his latest book, The Classical American House, a compilation of work of various architects around the country that practice contemporary classicism. Featured in the book is the work of Louisiana architect, Ken Tate. While remaining loyal to traditional classical design, the architectural projects featured in the book display a remarkable talent for versatility and adaptability within the fundamental classical language of architecture. The book also highlights the collaboration between the architect’s application of excellent detailing, the use of fine material, and exceptional craftsmanship, and how, all the while, creating a refined seamless fusion with the surrounding landscape and environment.
