A Glimpse Of The Past Through The Architectural Engineer Collection - An Architectural Engineer is basically an engineer who also has studied and been trained as an architect. The advantage for an architectural firm is that of having an in-house engineer that can solve the structural challenges that the creative architect instinct can result in. A creative architect, sometimes on his or her own, and sometimes by the instigation of the client, can create a design that pushes the envelope of what is structurally feasible. At especially these times the architectural engineer can put his unique blend of disciplines to the test. It appears that Thomas Jefferson had this unique blend as he incorporated unique features in his famous Monticello. JAMES HOBAN - 1762-1831 - Won the design competition for the new president's house in 1792, and supervised the construction. It was built of Virginia freestone on the front, and the remainder was painted white, forever being called the White House. He also designed some hotels in Washington, D.C. and supervised the rebuilding of the White House when it was destroyed in the War of 1812. THOMAS JEFFERSON 1743-1826 - The third President of the U.S. is known for his own unique contributions to the field of natural history and especially to the field of architecture. His mansion home at Monticello incorporates many ideas emphasizing form as well as function.Benjamin Banneker 1731-1806 - A bit of intrigue ensued when the chief planner and architect of the District of Columbia was dismissed by Thomas Jefferson in 1792, and he took all the maps and plans with him. But Benjamin Banneker, a member of the survey team, was able to reconstruct most of the plans from memory and improve on them. Thanks to Banneker, today we have a much more sensible plan than what was originally set forth.
