John Massengale – Sustaining Values: 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 expertise in the building of New York, New England, and New Mexico, and I emphasize a resilient Regional Green in urban and architectural design. Download CV.
