1 AIA CES Learning Unit|Elective and 1 credit towards the Certificate in Classical Architecture
Classicism responds to a deep desire of the human mind to unite with an ideal past. The history of classicism is a history of revivals, each looking back to a Golden Age. Each revival makes its own contribution to the classical tradition, because none completely recreates the work of the past but adapts it to changed conditions. Revival is thus a spur to invention and invariably driven by an ambition to evoke or rival an imagined past. Clive Aslet is an architectural historian who has published some 20 books. For many years he worked for the magazine Country Life, of which he was editor from 1993-2006. His latest book is a collaboration with the photographer Dylan Thomas, looking at the place of the British country house in the 21st century. It will be published in Spring 2020. He and Dylan have founded a publishing house called Triglyph Books. In July, Clive will be the Director of the Buckingham University architectural summer school – a prelude to what is hoped will be a new School of Architecture focused on Classicism and traditional urbanism. His first novel, The Birdcage, was published in 2014.This course, a component of the Summer Studio in Classical Architecture, is open to public registration.Image: Giovanni Battista Piranesi, "Via Appia immaginaria", 1756.
