Architectural Reception and Classical Style in the Modern World

Edited by Katharine T. von Stackelberg and Elizabeth Macaulay-Lewis

  • Offers the first major study of the reception of ancient (Classical and Egyptian) architecture to focus on domestic space in a holistic way, combining studies on exterior façades and streetscapes, interior decoration, and landscaping
  • Proposes the "Neo-antique" as a new framework through which to analyze the reception of ancient architectural styles rather than simply Neo-Classical or Neo-Egyptian
  • Supplies a variety of critical interpretative frameworks via case studies that move reception studies beyond the field of textual analysis into material culture
  • Provides a cogent summary of the field of the state of Classical Reception Studies as it relates to architecture
