James Strickland Talk at Pella Crafted Luxury

James Strickland of Historical Concepts LLC, Atlanta will speak about the work of his firm, Thursday, September 22 at the Pella Crafted Luxury Showroom Suite 100 at the Merchandise Mart. The lecture is cosponsored by the Institute of Classical Architecture and Art.  Reception at 5:30, Lecture at 6:00. RSVPs required at www.pellacraftedluxury.com /events  

James L. Strickland founded Historical Concepts in 1982. A graduate of Yale University’s Graduate School of Architecture, he began his career with real estate development in Florida, later moving back home to Georgia to establish a design build firm that built over 200 traditionally inspired homes in the Atlanta area. Looking to both the vernacular architecture of the region with its links to craftsmanship and available materials, and America’s Greco-Roman architectural heritage, the work of Historical Concepts adapts the forms of historic houses for contemporary living, preserving their traditional spirit and their idiosyncrasies. Strickland and his firm are among the most inventive architects designing traditional architecture today. Sharing his knowledge, experience, and passion for architecture, Jim has taught at Georgia Institute of Technology, and served as guest critic at the Universities of Miami and Notre Dame. The work of Historical Concepts is the subject of Coming Home: The Southern Vernacular House, published by Rizzoli in 2012.
