Summary The principles of classical architecture applied to the design of interiors, both residential and public. A PRACTICING ARCHITECT shows how the elements that constitute the classical interior--wall and ceiling treatments, doors and windows, fireplaces, and stairs--can be composed into rooms satisfying both aesthetic and practical criteria. Historic and contemporary examples illustrate both generic and specific solutions for designers working in the classical tradition today.
