The Classical Orders: Ionic Order
Hosted by the Southern California Chapter | 4 AIA LUs
This fast-paced intensive provides an introduction to understanding and laying out classical architecture through a study of the Ionic Order. Students of all abilities will learn the proportions, details, and essential parts of classical architecture by laying out a column, entablature, and pediment (not to worry, you will know those terms before the course is done). The intensive will end with a sketch problem combining these elements to create a classical door aedicula and a typical façade.
Most importantly, you will learn why the study of the classical orders is an essential foundation in the study and practice of architecture whether traditional or contemporary.
PLEASE NOTE: Introduction to Classical Moldings was a pre-requisite for this course as well as The Corinthian Order (March 27).
This event is hosted by an ICAA Chapter. Please check the Chapter website, or contact the Chapter directly, for the most up-to-date details including dates, times, and pricing.
