PORPHYRIOS ASSOCIATES. The Allure of the Classical

A celebration of new traditional buildings by a renowned classicist. Porphyrios Associates is one of the most renowned traditionalist architecture, interior design, and urban design firms at work today. Based in London, the firm has gained a large following with traditional buildings that are functionally and comfortably of the present. In this monograph, the firm’s recent work is showcased, highlighting new residential, cultural, academic, and religious projects. The reader sees private residences in country and city settings around the globe: from Hitchin, England, where a new home with red brick walls and clay roof tiles stands in keeping with the architecture of the area, while revealing interiors that are surprisingly contemporary with art deco detailing and finishes; a villa in Porto Heli, Greece, adorned with pools and balconies and set upon an azure sea; a stately residence in Amman, Jordan, that nods to Arabic tradition, featuring mashrabiyas—projecting windows enclosed with carved wood latticework—and arched doorways. Beyond its esteemed residential work, this international firm has created a multitude of building types, from hotels to monasteries, arts buildings to student residences to university halls. Throughout the work, what stands out is architectural virtuosity that marries the very best of classical architecture and modern design.

> Demetri Porphyrios has taught at the Royal College of Art and at the Architectural Association in London, and has been a visiting professor at Yale University. He is the recipient of the prestigious Ross Award and the Driehaus Prize.
