So I've been collecting loads and loads of names, who put the craft of 21st century traditionalist and New Classical Architecture in the spotlight, and who do well at it. :)

Thought it'd be good to have a list for an overview here. Please post additional names (if possible incl. websites and encyclopedic entries)! Of any new classical contemporary architects that you know of or stumble upon.

The most current version of the architects list can be found here:
List of Architects at Wikipedia

The general thread about new classical / new traditionalist architecture is this:
--- New Buildings Built in Traditional Architecture Style ---

Richmond Riverside by Quinlan Terry, built 1987 (Nick Taimitarha)

John Canning Studio is not an architectural design firm. They do decorative painting, gilding and plaster work, particularly for churches and theaters.
You can find traditional architects from the Institute of Classical Architecture & Art's directory of professional members on their website.

Well, the "idiot" is right though. Mere link lists aren't allowed at Wikipedia, at least not in such a thematic article. Else we'd have "yellow pages" like articles all around. What I wanted to do is to create a seperate list, that's where we can put it in a table. Perhaps this weekend I'll have some leisure to do it.

Btw, article content at Wikipedia can always be restored via the history. Unless it's copyrighted material that was hard-deleted. This is the New Classical architects list prior to deletion.

As I said, I'll outsource it, so please don't revert again. You might get blocked from editing Wikipedia.
There are several firms in Atlanta that do traditional work. There is Historical Concepts (James Strickland, architect), Harrison Design, Howard Design Studio, William T. Baker, and Keith Summerour.

In Alabama there is McAlpine Tankersley, and William (Bill) Ingram.
