On a magical spring day, I had the good fortune to visit to the newly opened Renwick Gallery in Washington, D.C., to see an exhibition called Wonder. Luckily we arrived early enough on a Sunday morning to avoid the long line, however it is worth the wait to explore the exhibit and the see the newly restored galleries which are part of the Smithsonian.

Andrew Skurman, the award winning San Francisco and Paris based architect, specializes in designing classical houses. This was not always the case. Early in his career, Andy worked with I.M.Pei and Partners designing office towers, Skidmore, Owings and Merrill where he learned to be in charge of large commercial projects and interact with clients and finally on to Gensler as a studio director. None of these prestigious firms created the Georgian country houses, French Chateaux or Mediterranean villas that Andrew Skurman Architects is known for today.
