The National Civic Art Society and The American Conservative cordially invite you to attend a panel discussion on the re-issue of Henry Hope Reed’s book The Golden City, a 1959 manifesto on the need for classical principles in contemporary architecture.
The Golden City was a seminal, critical document that developed one of the earliest and most compelling arguments against the then-dominant hegemony of modernism by reawakening interest in the value of our country’s built patrimony, particularly with respect to its notable classical architecture, classical sculpture, and ornament in the built environment. The book’s argument remains vital today.
The Golden City was recently re-published with new essays by critic Catesby Leigh and architect Alvin Holm.
Join us at the University Club in Washington DC on November 30th at 5:00 PM as Leigh and Holm participate in a discussion about the book moderated by Reed disciple Seth Weine, an architectural and graphic designer.
The event, which is preceded by a reception, is free and open to the public.
Reception: 5:00 PM
Panel: 6:00 PM
