Kurzbeschreibung

13. Juni 2006
This deeply researched and abundantly illustrated study catalogs all of Latrobe's domestic commissions, offering an authoritative treatment of the concepts, designs, and unique interior and exterior features of his houses. Benjamin Henry Latrobe, an English emigre and the first professional architect of international stature to practice in the United States, invented an American house type for the new democratic republic. Calling upon his diverse education and travel experiences in Europe and his training with eminent architects and engineers in London, Latrobe responded to American manners and climate by producing what he called his "rational house," an application of Enlightenment thinking to the design of a proper living environment for the citizens of the world's most recent democracy. Establishing a new benchmark in Latrobe studies, Michael W. Fazio and Patrick A. Snadon extend their analysis to Latrobe's training and career in England and Europe, his principles of design, and his methods of architectural practice. The authors trace the evolution of his design thinking through analytical essays on all of his major domestic commissions and conclude with a summary discussion of his position within the international architectural scene, his design theories, the integration of interior design and engineering into his architectural practice, and the preservation of his houses.

Synopsis

This deeply researched and abundantly illustrated study catalogs all of Latrobe's domestic commissions, offering an authoritative treatment of the concepts, designs, and unique interior and exterior features of his houses. Benjamin Henry Latrobe, an English emigre and the first professional architect of international stature to practice in the United States, invented an American house type for the new democratic republic. Calling upon his diverse education and travel experiences in Europe and his training with eminent architects and engineers in London, Latrobe responded to American manners and climate by producing what he called his "rational house," an application of Enlightenment thinking to the design of a proper living environment for the citizens of the world's most recent democracy. Establishing a new benchmark in Latrobe studies, Michael W. Fazio and Patrick A. Snadon extend their analysis to Latrobe's training and career in England and Europe, his principles of design, and his methods of architectural practice.

The authors trace the evolution of his design thinking through analytical essays on all of his major domestic commissions and conclude with a summary discussion of his position within the international architectural scene, his design theories, the integration of interior design and engineering into his architectural practice, and the preservation of his houses.

5.0 von 5 Sternen definitive study of early major American architect 17. Oktober 2006
Von Henry Berry - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
THE DOMESTIC ARCHITECTURE OF BENJAMIN HENRY LATROBE by Michael W. Fazio and Patrick A. Snadon. Johns Hopkins U. Press, Baltimore, MD; [...] 2006. 769+xx pp. $75.00 hardcover, 9" x 11", ISBN 0-8028-8204-8. maps on endpages, color/black-and-white photographs, illustrations, architectural diagrams, notes, index.

Nothing is spared in the way of breadth and depth of scholarship, nor in the way of production quality--for a definitive study of this important, but generally overlooked, American architect of the late 1700s into the early 1800s, the early period of the American Republic. A leading architect popular with the English royalty and gentry in their adaptations in a growing democratic society, Latrobe attracted the interest and commissions of the old and newly wealthy in the United States in the decades after the Revolutionary War for design of homes with many similarities to those he had done for the upper classes in his native England. And he attracted interest from government officials wishing to build impressive buildings representing the pride, the values, and the ambitions of the new Republic. Latrobe's architectural principles and designs went far in America as they had earlier in England because they characterized what he called his "rational house" based on ideas of the Enlightenment partly originating in England and embraced by America's Founding Fathers in their creation of the basics of the American political system and its institutions. Fazio is a professor at Mississippi State U.'s School of Architecture; Snadon is a professor of interior design at the School of Architecture and Interior Design at the U. of Cincinnati. The abundant biographical, critical, and analytical text with the hundreds of illustrations of all scales of architectural works are peerlessly informative standing alone. But also they work to render the authors' revisionist perspective that "perhaps only Thomas Jefferson...held a panoramic view over the international architectural scene comparable to Latrobe."

5.0 von 5 Sternen A comprehensive 'must' for any serious college-level architectural history holding. 7. November 2006
Von Midwest Book Review - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
College-level architectural collections serious about their in-depth coverage will want to look at the weighty The Domestic Architecture of Benjamin Henry Latrobe. It catalogs all of Latrobe's domestic commissions from interiors to exteriors, and even includes analysis of his training and career in both England and Europe, his design principles, and his methods. Analytical essays accompany sketches and vintage black and white photos, surveying changes in his thinking and approach, considering his contemporaries and influences, and examining the preservation of his structures. A comprehensive 'must' for any serious college-level architectural history holding.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Review of The Domestic Architecture of Benjamin Latrobe 13. Mai 2010
Von R. T. Busch - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
This is the single-most comprehensive study of the domestic architecture of Benjamin Latrobe that I have seen. Latrobe is possibly more widely known for his civic projects such as the waterworks in Philadelphia, the Latrobe Gate at the Washington, DC Navy Yard, the Basilica in Baltimore, and surely St. John's Church on Lafayette Swuare in Washington, DC. However, only a small number of his domestic projects remain. Thus, the massive amount of research that was done to capture the details of all his domestic projects is of great value to architectural scholars and lay people alike. The authors have done for this area of Latrobe's work what Talbot Hamlin in general for Greek Revival architecture in America 65 years ago.
