By Rebecca Christian and the Editors of Traditional Home
Traditional Home readers love the work of Louisiana architect Ken Tate; you're about to see why. Ken, the Mississippi-bred master of southern vernacular design, is the author of the new book, A Classical Journey (Images, 2011, available at amazon.com). He strives to create what he calls architecture with a soul. As a young student, he wrote that his goal was "To bring beauty out of ugliness, order out of chaos, and something new out of passion." Those goals still inform his work.
Traditional Home magazine has featured homes that Ken has designed half a dozen times over the years. For this slide show, we plundered our archives to bring you the crème de la crème of this award-winning classical architect's work spanning nearly two decades.
