Atlee B. Ayres was one of the most prominent Texas architects of the early twentieth century. In a career spanning more than seventy years, Ayres was involved in more than five hundred architectural projects, principally in San Antonio and South Texas, but also in Kansas, Oklahoma, and New York. His architectural successes include distinguished public buildings such as San Antonio's first skyscraper, the Smith Young Tower, as well as private homes, businesses, churches, and five buildings on the campus of the University of Texas at Austin.However, it was in the houses he designed that the influences of the refined eclecticism for which Ayres became known are most evident. In the beautifully illustrated The Eclectic Odyssey of Atlee B. Ayres, Architect, author Robert James Coote focuses on Ayres's early-twentieth-century residential architecture and the sources from which he drew inspiration. During the three decades Coote examines, Ayres designed nearly two hundred homes in the fashionable San Antonio suburbs of Monte Vista, Olmos Park, and Terrell Hills, homes that even now rank among the most charming in the area.Ayres's eclectic search for inspiration and guidance from buildings of many times and places, American and European, provides a window on the issue of style—an issue that continues to interest those who design houses as well as those who experience them. Coote studies in detail twenty-five of Ayres's houses, not only as representative of styles, but also as architectural compositions—their plans, spaces, exteriors, materials, and structure.Coote has mined an extraordinary collection of drawings, specifications, office correspondence, and photographs of Ayres's buildings to write this insightful treatment of an important architect and the influences that made him both an exemplar of his times and an unusually fine practitioner of eclecticism.
  • Cordaron
Thanks!
  • Rude
Great book about an amazing architect who was my great grandfather!

It was a gift for s client who bought a home designed by the architect.

Ayres is very argueably the foremost residental architect in the storied history of San Antonio. Ayles is to San Antonio what John Staub was to Houston and John William was to Los Angeles, the choice of the elite to design their dreams. This book is well crafted by Robert Coote, the text is urbane and enlightening and the images are crisp and well presented. I did not find it Valhalla, like the review below and not being an architect, I have no idea if it's a great source for study, but as a person whom architecture resonates, I enjoyed it..not the end all be all, but a nice book, I recommend it..I really wonder how the review below would gush about a really great book..hummmmm...
