Speakers: Catesby Leigh & David Rau

Catesby Leigh has been writing about public art and architecture for over 20 years. Particular areas of interest have been monuments (and anti-monuments), institutional buildings, urban planning, and painting and sculpture. His commentary has appeared in The Wall Street Journal, City Journal, First Things, National Review, Weekly Standard, Claremont Review of Books, Modern Age, Arts & Antiques and other publications. Mr. Leigh is a co-founder and past chair of the National Civic Art Society (NCAS), which supports the perpetuation of the classical tradition in the nation's public realm. Currently an NCAS research fellow, he is working on a long-term book project concerning the nature of monumentality and its American manifestations. He lives in Washington, D.C.


David Rau is an architect whose unique, collaborative approach has attracted a diverse clientele that relies on his ability to bring together ownership, executive teams, and other stakeholders, while leading large, complex assignments worldwide for destination resorts, residential communities, cultural centers and urban infill developments.

Recent work includes two new U.S. locations for Hyatt’s luxury Miraval resort brand, as well as the expansion of the Chatham Bars Inn on Cape Cod, the repositioning of Harbour Town at Hilton Head Island, and the new Outrigger Reef Hotel in Oahu, Hawaii. Prior work includes a private yacht club on Gibson Island in Maryland’s Chesapeake Bay, a new Canyon Ranch SpaClub at The Homestead resort in Virginia, and the repositioning of the iconic Grove Park Inn at Asheville in North Carolina. Mr. Rau’s international work includes The Belfry resort outside Birmingham, England, and a new residential community along the Mediterranean coast of North Africa.

A frequent lecturer, Mr. Rau recently led a panel on absolution through architecture at Congress for New Urbanism’s 26th congress and has delivered TED Talks as part of a regional TEDx event. He serves on the editorial board of The Classist, the national journal of the Institute for Classical Architecture & Art. His buildings and interiors have been widely published, in print and online and, most recently, his work for Quirk Hotel in downtown Richmond, Virginia, received widespread recognition, including in Condé Nast Traveler as one of the “Best New Hotels and Resorts in the World.”
