Since the beginnings of their architectural practice in 1992, William Curtis and Russell Windham have dedicated their work to the principle that classical architecture, in its best sense, should embody the same rigor, the same attention to surroundings, and the same thoughtful approach to design theory that fuels the most forward-looking styles and movements. In their graciously appointed book, Curtis and Windham reflect on more than two decades of the practice of classical contemporary architecture, with quiet assertion that carefully considered work performed along traditional lines can be, in its own way, groundbreaking.

William Curtis is a founding board member of the Texas Chapter of the Institute of Classical Architecture & Art, and currently serves on its Board of Directors. In 1999, he and Russell Windham received that organization’s Arthur Ross Award for their body of work in Houston. He has lectured at the Institute of Classical Architecture & Art in New York and at the University of Notre Dame School of Architecture. His work has been published in several books, including, Nice House by Samuel G. White, Creating a New Old House by Russell Versaci, and The Institute of Classical Architecture, A Decade of Art and Architecture 1992-2002. A graduate of the University of Texas, he has exhibited throughout Texas and participated as a critic at various architectural schools in the United States. He currently serves on the Dean’s Advisory Council for the University of Texas School of Architecture.
