two of a mind

Architect Bobby McAlpine and Interior Designer Susan Ferrier will be the keynote speakers at Atlanta Decorative Arts Center Tuesday, April 29th.
Bobby and Susan. DESIGN ADAC 2014The event begins at 1:00 PM. The pair will discuss their multiple creative collaborations as well as their new book from Rizzoli, Art of the House: Reflections on Design. Copies of the newly released book will be available for sale and signing immediately following the talk.

As a twist, Bobby and Susan will be breaking the “talk at you” format typical of most presentations and will, instead, be asking each other probing questions. This casual chat between friends will give the audience a voyeuristic ear into the alchemy that happens in the design process. Having spent much time with these two dynamic personalities, it will undoubtedly be a fun and revealing session.

The new book spotlights five houses in detail, all of which are located at The Camp at The Ridge on bucolic Lake Martin, Alabama.  Each house in this unique development is basically the same window lined wooden box with but a few variations on a theme.  Individuality was expressed in Susan’s dramatic and eclectic interiors, each reflecting the singular spirit of the owner’s particular personality.
