Lecture & Book Signing

John B. Murray, Guest Speaker

With a perspective that values symmetry, scale, and proportion, classical architect John B. Murray is repeatedly asked to look at decades-old, often historic, spaces, modify floor plans, and revisit materials and ornamentation to create a current and fresh spatial vision that addresses the needs of contemporary life. In this talk, John will share how his firm’s classical take on spatial and compositional problem-solving has evolved and embraced fresh, current concepts for elegant living—always with a classicist’s mandate to establish living spaces that are timeless. This highly visual presentation will showcase John’s work in one of New York City’s most iconic residential buildings, as well as several of the projects featured in his recently-released second monograph Contemporary Classical Architecture John B. Murray (The Monacelli Press).

John B. Murray is the principal architect and founder of John B. Murray Architect, a New York firm specializing in city and country residences designed within a classical framework. An honors graduate of Carnegie Mellon University, John joined the firm Parish-Hadley, where he worked with the legendary designer Albert Hadley.

John is a member of the ICAA's President's Council, serves on the board of the Professional Children’s School, the Thomas Jefferson Foundation’s Monticello Cabinet and will be a Design Co-Chair for the 2019 Winter Antiques Show.
