The Human-Scale Architect Pioneer: Charles Eliot
I'm sending this along in appreciation and celebration of Sharon Simms' NEW GROUP, Building Architecture and Dings. I approached the subject of this article back around Thanksgiving. Like Ines' article, it didn't get much notice at the time, but I loved writing it anyway.. I was feeling appreciative and sentimental. Thanksgiving does it to me every year. History does it to me. Imagine how amazing it is for me to live in a city (Asheville, N.C.) -- known not only for historic charm, but for architectural diversity...Romanesque Revival,Victorian, Neo-Gothic, Neo-Georgian, Classical Revival, Art Deco, Craftsman, Bungalow...Cabins and Castles.
Here is one such castle, the Biltmore House at the Biltmore Estate "House" in this case may be a misnomer as you can see with this photo, courtesy of Wikipedia.
I drive by THIS beauty on my way home almost every day. This is St. Mary's Church, constructed in 1914 in the English Gothic Revival style. The red brick church building built with a stone foundation has a steeply pitched gabled roof. The windows are pointed arches with leaded glass diamond panes. According to the National Park Service, of prominent Asheville architect Richard Sharp Smith had his hand in this project.
