Event Details

Patrick Ahearn, one of America’s top classic architects and author of Timeless will be discussing “Architecture for the Greater Good” at the Celebrate Weston Festival, Sat. May 21st, 11-12:30, St. Julia Parish Hall. 

 

"Whether carefully restoring century-old landmarked townhouses in Boston’s Back Bay or creating new homes that reimagine the local vernacular of Martha’s Vineyard, Ahearn demonstrates an unparalleled ability to combine the romance of traditional architecture with the ideals of modernism. With his work, he sensitively balances preservation with innovation to make buildings that feel truly timeless. Timeless features eighteen “Ahearn-designed” homes and explains how he adapts and applies philosophy’s greater-good theory to each of his projects. The idea of the greater good encapsulates his profound belief that architecture has the power to improve lives, to increase happiness, and to encourage friendly and familiar interactions. It serves as a guiding principle for all of his work. To achieve the goals of this theory, Ahearn designs buildings that are appropriately scaled and smartly sited, paying as much attention to the spaces between structures as to the structures themselves." from https://patrickahearn.com/timeless-book/
