Charleston Renaissance Man

The Architectural Legacy of Albert Simons in the Holy City

In the years between World Wars I and II, Charleston, South Carolina, experienced a cultural renaissance led largely by artists, writers, architects, and preservationists that has been credited with making this port city the popular tourist destination it is today. Architect Albert Simons was foremost among this group and contributed mightily to the cultural milieu of the Charleston Renaissance through his architectural design and passion for preservation. His work helped to mold the cityscape and set a course that would both preserve the historic South Carolina city and carry it forward into the twentieth century.

This beautifully illustrated volume reveals the deep connection between Simons and the city that he loved. Although he preferred the more traditional Beaux-Arts and Classical styles, his unique ability to balance them with modernism was deeply embedded in the ethos of Charleston and the renaissance that spurred the city's rebirth as an international destination defined by its architectural heritage.

A foreword is provided by Witold Rybczynski, an award-winning author of numerous books including Charleston Fancy: Little Houses and Big Ideas in the Holy City.
