The Art of Classical Details: Theory, Design and Craftsmanship

Phillip James Dodd

A native of Manchester, England, Phillip attended the prestigious Prince of Wales’ Institute of Architecture in London—where he was taught by many of the architects featured in this book. He received a Degree in Architecture from his hometown university, before moving to America, where he gained a Masters in Architecture from The University of Notre Dame.

As a well-regarded expert on classical architecture and interiors, Phillip has worked for some of the most recognized residential architectural firms in America. He is a Fellow Emeritus at The Institute of Classical Architecture and Classical America, where from 2006 to 2009 he served as the jury coordinator for the annual Arthur Ross Awards. He has taught classical design at the ICA & CA and at Notre Dame, and has been a guest critic for the Interiors Departments at Parson’s School of Design and the Fashion Institute of Technology. Most recently, Phillip was elected a Fellow of the prestigious INTBAU College of Traditional Practitioners.

Phillip is also the author of New Classicists: Wadia Associates, which features a foreword by H.R.H. The Prince of Wales, and an Introduction by Paul Gunther—the President of the ICA & CA. He was also one of the contributing authors of the Classicist: Volume VI and served on the editorial team responsible for A Decade of Art & Architecture 1992–2002.
