Question from Last Week:
Architecture Puzzler #298
During the early 1800s, Greek Revival was a prevalent style for residences in the United States. This style was spread by builder's common use of pattern books and by the influence of such architects as Town and Davis and designer/ writer Minard Lafever. Due in part to the publications of Andrew Jackson Downing in the mid-1840s, the Greek Revival style was challenged by a new style of architecture. What was this style? Can you name any of A.J. Downing's influential books?
