Join the ICAA and the AIA|DC at this illustrated lecture and book signing by Margot Ellis.

Americans in Paris is a beautifully written and illustrated book which documents the history of American architecture students at the influential École des Beaux-Arts, Paris. Renowned as one of the great art and architecture schools, the École des Beaux-Arts is the namesake and founding location of the Beaux-Arts architectural movement. Americans who studied at the École returned to the United States to build some of the great buildings of the 19th Century, including the Boston Public Library  (Charles McKim), the New York Public Library (John Carrère), the Biltmore Estate (Richard Morris Hunt) the Hearst Castle (Julia Morgan)

Americans in Paris is an INDIEFAB 2014 Silver Winner for Architecture.
