The Domestic Architecture of Palladio: A Stage Set for Life
Hosted by the Rocky Mountain Chapter | 4 AIA LUs
Please join accomplished New Jersey architect, lecturer, and ICAA instructor Marvin Clawson, AIA as he surveys Andrea Palladio’s The Four Books on Architecture and its influence on domestic architectural paradigms throughout history. Studying masterpieces of architecture is our gateway to understanding the built environment and our own humanity. Participants will gain a better understanding of Palladio's compositional influences, collective knowledge of craft (masonry), and theory to design houses that incorporate the three distinctive criteria of: strength, utility and beauty. By comparing the drawn and built forms of his domestic architecture the course will focus on the transformative qualities of his architecture and their influence on his contemporaries and future architects.
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.
