Classical architecture in modern times: G.S. Smith & F. Terry

"One of the most exciting things about classical architecture is its power to be uplifting."

Buildings should last longer than fashion trends, says architects G.S. Smith & F. Terry. In this talk from TEDxLondonBusinessSchool, they defend the craft of classical architecture — with its strict rules and, yes, columns — as a timeless art that maintains a city’s identity.
