Co-Hosted by the New England Chapter and the ICAA National Office
Join ICAA New England and the ICAA National Office as archaeologist, professor, and television personality Darius Arya delivers a three-part lecture series from Rome: Lessons from Vitruvius.
In Part Two, we take a deep dive into Vitruvius's 10 books of architecture. Far beyond the scope of any Roman or Greek contemporary, Vitruvius sought to define and outline an entire discipline. We compare and contrast his ideas of architecture versus those of his contemporaries and measure Vitruvius's writings against the work and education of an architect today. We'll examine the Roman architect's education, building materials, building types, site planning, acoustics, machines, and more!
