The 2023 Christopher H. Browne Drawing Tour
October 17, 2023
In this video, join the participants in the Christopher H. Browne Venice Drawing Tour, which took place this past May, as they explore the historic city's architectural legacy, studying and learning from precedent through the practice of measured and analytical field drawing.
The Christopher H. Browne Drawing Tours form the cornerstone of the ICAA education program. The tours follow in the footsteps of architects journeying abroad and at home to study and document precedents for the purpose of informing the design of new buildings and places. The course is structured around the tradition of measured and analytical field drawing in sketchbook as the primary means of building a compendium of resources for reference in future design endeavors. Each course examines the continuity and vitality of the classical tradition in a paradigmatic city or region that has been instrumental in its development. Drawing subjects cover all scales of design - from the city and its contiguous landscape as a comprehensive work of civic art, to the architectural composition of individual buildings, to the fine grain of architectural details, building craft, materials and the building arts.
The Christopher H. Browne Drawing Tours honor the generosity, leadership, and legacy of the Institute of Classical Architecture & Art’s late Trustee, Mr. Christopher H. Browne.
