From the neoclassicism of Thomas Jefferson’s design of Monticello and sketches of the White House, to "al’italiana" gardens and parks, to the strong Roman classicism of the Jefferson Memorial, to Constantino Brumidi’s frescoes in Congress and the National Library, to the striking composition of Luigi Moretti’s Watergate Complex—America’s capital is infused with the influences of a culture that laid the foundations of Western society. Extensively illustrated with both archival black and white photos, drawings, and sketches, as well as new photographs by Max Mackenzie, this book is an homage to this strong and still alive relationship and essential reading for all those interested in architecture and the visual arts.
