The Claremont Review of Books: A Living Tradition

The Claremont Review of Books just published a lovely review in their spring journal of our latest monograph, Allan Greenberg: Classical Architect.  Anthony Paletta writes a very well articulated piece which extends beyond our monograph itself and delves into themes we have been working on over the past 40 years.  Three wonderful illustrations by Elliot Banfield accompany the article.  Please click here to find the PDF of the article, courtesy of the Claremont Review of Books:  A Living Tradition.


The Closet Modernist: How does a classical architect decorate at home?

“A designer know for his classical architecture surrounds himself and his wife with anything but.” – Steven Kurutz for The New York Times

The December 19, 2013, Home section of the New York Times was on location with Allan and his wife Judith Seligson in their New York city apartment. The article is features pictures of the apartment which is decorated with Judy’s abstract paintings and includes a stunning half-bathroom filled with a tile mosaic of a rose garden created by Allan’s daughter, Ruth Greenberg, a ceramist (for more on Ruth’s art, visit her website: www.rfgtile.com).  Attached to the article is a slideshow showcasing Allan and Judy’s art filled apartment.

 



Allan Greenberg Architect named to the new AD100 list

Allan Greenberg Architect was selected by Architectural Digest for their 2014 AD100 list, a listing of the world’s top architects and designers.

“Since 1990 Architectural Digest has been naming the world’s preeminent architects and designers to a select group know as the AD100.  An arbiter of excellence, this exclusive list recognizes establishment icons ad enterprising trailblazers whose work is as inspiring as it is influential.  These are the men and women who are shaping the way we live—one building, one house, one room at a time.”  -Architectural Digest

This is the 3rd consecutive time that we’ve made the list.  Read Allan’s profile and see the rest of the list in the January 2104 issue of Architectural Digest.
