Housing the New Romans: Architectural Reception and Classical Style in the Modern World

Katharine T. von Stackelberg and Elizabeth Macaulay-Lewis

Abstract

This volume investigates how appropriation and allusion facilitated the reception of Classical Greece and Rome and ancient Egypt through place-making, specifically through the requisition and redeployment of Classicizing and Egyptianizing tropes to create Neo-Antique sites of “dwelling” and place-making oriented toward private life (houses, hotels, clubs, tombs, and gardens) in the late eighteenth, nineteenth, and twentieth centuries.

Keywords: Neoclassical, Neo-Antique, Neo-Egyptian, greenscapes, architectural reception, interior decor, reception theory, material culture, hyperreality
