Architecture and the Constitution

I’m pleased to report that Allan Greenberg, America’s foremost classicist architect, will be speaking at the Ethics and Public Policy Center (the D.C.-based think tank I head) on “American Architecture and the Legacy of the Revolution” next Thursday, November 1.  In his book Architecture of Democracy (which my EPPC colleague Hadley Arkes reviewed in the always-interesting Claremont Review of Books), Mr. Greenberg explains that great American architecture “embodies the ideals of democracy for which our revolution was fought and our Constitution created.”  For more information and to register to attend, please see here.
