Regional Classicism: Cosmopolitan and Local in the Colonial Chesapeake
with Jeffrey Klee
Vice President and Senior Director of Architecture,
Classical American Homes Preservation Trust
Thursday, June 3, 2021
6:00 PM - 7:00 PM EDT
Scholars of classical design in the Chesapeake have tended to focus on a handful of buildings with identifiable English pattern-book sources. But a fuller picture of the region’s architecture emerges from a consideration of the ways in which a distinctively local approach to classical design developed in the eighteenth century, one that enabled people to understand that a cyma backhand on a one-room house and the full entablature at Christ Church, Lancaster County were both part of a broadly intelligible language of design.
This presentation explores the distinctive regional idiom of classical architecture that emerged in the colonial Chesapeake, outlining its derivation from English sources and its relationship to local social life.
