“Eclecticism in Architecture”
Dallas based architect Richard Davis will discuss the origins and practice of the architecture of eclecticism which created the residences and estates of the “Gatsby Era” during the Roaring 20’s and into the 1930’s. Particular attention will be given to the homes of Kessler Park built in European styles. Davis will address the change in design direction in America following the Columbian Exposition in Chicago in 1892, the leading architects of the period and their work, and the important Dallas architects and their work in Oak Cliff. The presentation will also discuss contemporary eclectic styles.
Richard Davis is president of Richard Davis Architects, Inc. and received his masters degree in Architecture from Princeton University. He has owned his firm for over thirty years and is recognized for his design of local and national luxury residences. Davis is also known for his striking renovation and restoration of the Kessler Theater. He has lived in Winnetka Heights since 2003.
