George Washington, Architect
Allan Greenberg (au); Vincent Scully (fr); Tim Buchman (ph)
Explores the first president’s overlooked innovations as a designer of buildings and landscapes. Washington was an exemplary form-giver whose best work was conducted in his own back yards: Mt. Vernon and Wash., D.C. He not only redesigned the exterior and interior of his mansion at Mt. Vernon, but also sculpted the terrain, rearranged vistas, designed farm buildings, and created one of the most beautiful American gardens. And, designed in 1791 by his handpicked choice Peter Charles L’Enfant, Wash., D.C., symbolically expresses the principles of the first democratic federal republic in history. As executed by L’Enfant, it was Washington’s vision cast in stone. Over 200 full-color and black and white drawings and photos. Oversize.
