In which a group of graying eternal amateurs discuss their passions, interests and obsessions, among them: movies, art, politics, evolutionary biology, taxes, writing, computers, these kids these days, and lousy educations.

New Classicists

Friedrich --

Robert Adam's Sackler Library at Oxford

If you're interested in the New Classicism, here are some treats.

First, the thoughts of a few New Classicist intellectuals:

*Leon Krier on how absurd modernist architecture is, here.
*Carroll William Westfall compares classical and modernist architecture, here.
*David Watkin, a brilliant British architectural historian, arguing that classical architecture is the language of Western civ, here.
*Lucien Steil, himself a New Classicist, runs Katarxis, a terrific webzine about traditional and classical architecture, here.

You can taste-test some of the work of the New Classicists at these sites:

*The Institute for the Study of Classical Architecture, in NYC, here.
*The studio of Robert Adam, one of the more bold New Classicists, here.
*The native-born and still-young Eric Watson of Tampa, Florida, who has worked with many of the New Urbanists, here.
*Julian Bicknell, one of the stricter but also most romantic of the group, here.

[Note to the zillions of journalists (small joke) who frequent this site looking for ideas to steal: go wild! And lotsa luck with this one, which I tried to sell for years, and for which I never found any takers.]
