American architect, stage designer, and writer CLAUDE FAYETTE BRAGDON (1866-1946) helped found the Rochester Architectural Club, in the city where he made his greatest mark as a building designer with structures including Rochester Central Station, Rochester Institute of Technology, and the First Universalist Church; he also designed Peterborough Bridge in Ontario.

Ornament in its primitive manifestations is geometrical rather than naturalistic. This is in a manner strange, that the abstract and metaphysical thing should precede the concrete and sensuous. -from The World Order One of the most respected philosophers of architecture in the early 20th century, Bragdon here makes a plea to his fellow architects and the public at large to choose organic designs for public structures, and to reject the abstract modern architecture coming into vogue in the post World War I period. Examining building design on either side of the great, modernizing divide of the war, he argues for a softer, more human aesthetic, and offers numerous imaginary compositions, the products of his own fanciful yet logical creativity, to illustrate his points. First published in 1918, this highly readable volume has much to contribute to today's discourse on how to organize the public realm. Other works by Bragdon available from Cosimo Classics: More Lives Than One, The Beautiful Necessity, Episodes from An Unwritten History, and A Primer of Higher Space (The Fourth Dimension).

"Architecture and Democracy", by Claude Fayette Braydon published in 1918. John F. Braydon tries to separate America architectual forms from the Classic and Gothic era, stating that Democracy requires its' own form. He takes us through the cities with large concrete buildings like the ones found in New York which he considers them to be power structures meant to carry on financial business. He is of the opinion that America is built on materialism and people have loss site of comradeship except soldiers when deprived of all but essentil materials, they find strengh in fellow soldiers. He continues to give the properties of good architectual form as needing features of organic forms and light to make it good form.

The writing is good, but the author is a little redundant.
