“Sustainably Modern Architecture”
Redwood City, CA - April 28 , 2006 - Miami Beach architect, author, and photographer Steve Mouzon is the featured speakerat “The Forum at Redwood City” on Wednesday, May 3, 2006, from 6:00 - 7:45 pm. Mr. Mouzon will provide an exciting presentation on “Sustainably Modern Architecture.”
Steve Mouzon believes that traditional/classical architecture is the only architecture that remains “of our time” through the passage of time, thus being the only truly sustainably modern architecture. It becomes so by engaging the culture at large rather than remaining in the domain of a few star architects and critics. Hewill address why it is perfectly acceptable to use traditional and classical architecture in new projects and will explain how to get the details right so that we may get the same enjoyment out of new structures as we do out of our cherished historic buildings.
Mr. Mouzon is a principal and co-founder of The New Urban Guild, a group of architects, landscape architects and other New Urbanists dedicated to the study and design of true traditional buildings and places inspired by the region in which they are built. He has authored or contributed to a number of publications including Biltmore Estate Homes, Architectural Elements: Traditional Construction Details, 1001 Traditional Construction Details, and the just-released Traditional Construction Patterns, Design and Detail Rules of Thumb.
