Hosted by the Southeast Chapter | 3 AIA CES Learning Units|Elective | 3 credits towards the Certificate in Classical Architecture
This lecture course is a primer on the language and rationale of classical architecture. As an introduction to the classical orders, the course is an overview of the elements of classical architecture for beginners, interested laypersons, and those seeking a refresher. It offers an excellent prequel for students who intend to continue their education with a more focused study of the individual orders that will be offered by the Southeast Chapter in 2023. This course provides an overview of the core canonical reference literature on classical architecture, exposure to the basic rules, measurements, and proportions used in the classical architectural language, and an overview of the canon of the Orders of Architecture. The course concludes with an exploration of the enduring appeal of classical architecture, helping the student to discover reasons to employ the language in their work, and answer the question, "Why Classicism?"
