Yes. Thank Yahweh houseparts is back.
Yet another landmark Buckhead, Atlanta home by the iconic, early 20th-century architect, J. Neel Reid. This Andrews Drive estate is just around the corner from Atlanta’s famed “Swan House”. With apologies to the current owners for perhaps overstepping my bounds in a minor way, I’ve included an aerial view which affords a peek at the rarely-seen large guest house. As is the case with the best classical architecture, with some measured scrutiny of the street facade this late-Georgian beauty seems to take on a monolithic quality in scale and proportion. I personally believe this is atttibutible to the use of what some would call “sacred geometry” in establishing relationships between the architectural elements. I think it’s likely that Palladio and other classicists achieved this same sense of monolithic perfection using formulas derived from these same geometrical relationships. These formulas, which were passed down within some of the better schools of architectural study, were considered “sacred” in their origin, hence there is a measure of credence to the use of the term “sacred geometry”.
