||From John Massengale: I design buildings with a human scale that look like they were made by human hands. I value craftsmanship
and intelligent construction, and at all scales of design—from arranging rooms to arranging buildings
to organizing street plans—I emphasize the importance of making places where people want to be.
I frequently find Classical and Classically proportioned buildings the most beautiful, and I am an expert in the design
of Palladian architecture, the Classical and Classical Vernacular of 18th century
and early 19th century America, the American Renaissance of the early 20th century, and the Modern Classicism of today. I
have particular expertise in the building of New York, New England, New Jersey and New Mexico. In both urban and architectural design I emphasize sustainability and Regional Green.
