The six-hour Saturday seminar will combine lecture and drawing components of the Doric Order. The presentation will begin with a brief history of the development of the order and an overview of the methodology behind its construction, followed with step-by-step instructions on how to draw the order. The blackboard session will involve manual drawing of the order to illustrate the ideal ratios and proportions established by Renaissance treatise authors Vignola and Palladio. The seminar will emphasize the tectonic nature of the order and its origin in load-bearing post-and-lintel assemblages.
