A Freize in Florida

Personally, I loathe Greek Revival Architecture.  Colonnades, Doric/Ionic orders and marble statuary have no business beyond the Acropolis.  However, if I squint to flush out the suggestion of toga parties, feta and caryatids .... John Volk's architectural approach intrigues me.  His designs are proportioned and of interest, the Richard Meier color palette is functional for his Palm Beach clientele and his hand brings with it, a wonderful depth to the landscape.
