Classical Atlanta, Past and Present (Sold Out)

April 20 - 23, 2017

Tour arranged by Classical Excursions

This tour is currently sold out.

Atlanta’s classical tradition is a rich architectural heritage that since the early years of the 20th century has never ceased to thrive. Philip Trammell Shutze (Atlanta’s most revered), J. Neel Reid, Lewis Edmund Crook, Jr., James Means, Norman Davenport Askins, Stan Dixon, William Harrison and Young Pak, are just some of the names that come to mind in the pantheon of the southern city’s classical architects, past and present. The work of such interior designers as Jackye Lanham, Tammy Connor, Judy Bentley, Bunny Williams and Brian McCarthy have created with great integrity interiors that secure the classical tradition for today’s living styles.

The Institute of Classical Architecture & Art is pleased to announce an extended weekend tour of some of Atlanta’s best classical architecture, past and present. Thanks to ICAA travel committee members Barry Hutner and Stan Dixon, as well as others, the highest standards have been maintained in the selection of private homes for the tour. Among these are Eagle House by J. Neel Reid, inspired by Tintinhull House in Somerset, England, a Regency-style house also by J. Neel Reid, Olsen House by Stan Dixon, Nawench owned by Jackye Lanham and Mori House, Swan House and the May Patterson Goodrum House, all by Philip Shutze. These are just a few of the tour sites.

An opening dinner at the exclusive Piedmont Driving Club with a lecture by renowned architectural historian Elizabeth Dowling, a dinner in a splendid private home and a cocktail reception at another are just a few of the highlights for the tour. Overnight accommodations have been reserved at the Ritz Carlton, Buckhead.
