8 credits towards the Certificate in Classical Architecture
The ICAA Workshop in Classical Architecture introduces classical architecture as a living language to encourage literacy with the enduring forms which shape our built environment. The grammar, syntax, and proportional relationships of the classical canon are explored through freehand drawings of the classical orders and exercises that adapt the language to an architectural composition. The workshop kicks off with a series of short architectural case studies that highlight the use of the classical tradition in the design of new buildings and places today.
Please note that students are required to bring drawing materials to participate in the Workshop.
Note: The sketchbook must be able to lay completely flat when opened. It can be spiral-bound or stitch-bound (such as the Moleskin Art Series A4 size). Stitch-bound sketchbooks like the Moleskin Art series, that lay flat and allow both pages to be used for larger drawings are recommended.
OPTIONAL: These materials are not required but may be useful if already owned.
