Webinar: Introduction to the Classical Moldings with Erik Evens
Hosted by the Southern California Chapter | 1.5 AIA CES Learning Units|Elective per course session
This class, which consists of two hour and a half long sessions, provides an introduction to understanding the use andrationale of the classical moldings. Moldings are the basic building blocks of classical buildings, the “atomic units” at the very heart of the classical language of architecture, and a working knowledge of moldings is the starting point for a thoughtful approach to design. Students of all abilities will find interest and value in this fast-paced introduction. You will learn to draw the classical moldings freehand, and will gain an understanding of their purpose and correct use, and how to employ them for greatest effect. Whether your goal is to lay out a correct Doric column, or to design a beautifully embellished formal room, a practical understanding of the classical moldings and the rationale for their purpose and use is indispensable to the design practitioner.
Erik K. Evens is Principal of Evens Architects, a KAA Design Company. He is a licensed architect in California, with over thirty years' experience in residential, commercial, hospitality, and institutional work.
