New 20th & 21st Century Classical Architecture in Britain
Dell Mitchell is freshly returned from the UK, where she and other American architects working in the Classical tradition toured recent projects by luminaries of the British design world.
Highlights of the excursion sponsored by the Institute of Classical Architecture & Art included academic and ecclesiastical buildings, country houses and country house interiors, gardens and garden pavilions by Quinlan and Francis Terry, Craig Hamilton, Stuart Martin and Henrietta Spencer-Churchill, among others.
Star power was not lacking as distinguished architectural historian and author Clive Aslet led the group and participants were even granted entrée to the private gardens at Highgrove, the Gloucestershire country house of Charles, Prince of Wales.
