Join author Christine Casey for a presentation on her recently published book, which tells the remarkable story of the craftsmen of Ticino, in Italian-speaking Switzerland. These craftsmen took their prodigious skills as specialist decorative plasterworkers throughout Northern Europe in the 18th century, adorning classical architecture with their rich and fluent décor. Their names are not widely known – Giuseppi Artari (c.1690–1771), Giovanni Battista Bagutti (1681–1755), and Francesco Vassalli (1701–1771) are a few – but their work transformed the interiors of magnificent buildings in Italy, Austria, Germany, the Netherlands, Britain, and Ireland. Among the interiors highlighted in this deeply researched, beautifully illustrated volume are Palazzo Reale in Turin, Upper Belvedere in Vienna, St. Martin in the Fields in London, the Radcliffe Camera in Oxford, Houghton Hall in Norfolk, and Carton House in Ireland.

The Philadelphia Chapter of the Institute of Classical Architecture & Art (ICAA) is excited to announce the Second Biennial Trumbauer Awards, to be bestowed on November 15, 2018, in the Trumbauer-designed Lincoln Ballroom of The Union League of Philadelphia. The awards program honors exemplary work in contemporary classical architecture, design, planning, and the allied arts. This year’s program follows the incredibly successful inaugural competition which highlighted the celebrated work of architecture and design professionals in our area.

Named for internationally renowned, native Philadelphian architect Horace Trumbauer (1868-1938), the Trumbauer Awards celebrate contemporary classical projects that express the breadth and inclusiveness present in Trumbauer’s expansive work. Trumbauer’s extraordinary success followed modest professional and social beginnings, and he was unrivaled in the early 20th century in American architecture for the number and magnificence of his projects.
