Celebration of Classicism in Charleston recognizes David Gobel’s editing of this year’s “Classicist” journal
The journal Classicist launched its 2016 volume (#13), edited by Architectural History faculty member David Gobel, at an event in Charleston last week. The journal is produced by The Institute of Classical Architecture and Art, a New York-based nonprofit organization. The focus of this thirteenth volume of Classicist is the architectural traditions of classicism in the South. In addition to serving as editor, Gobel also authored an essay on the history of porches as a characteristic feature of Southern classicism. Departmental alumnus Nathaniel Walker (M.A. 2006) contributed an essay on the history of classicism in Charleston. The event received press attention in The Post and Courier newspaper.
