Workshop in Classical Architectural Design: University of Colorado Denver
The ICAA Workshop in Classical Architecture provides an introduction to classical architecture as a living language to encourage appreciation of the enduring forms which shape our built environment. The three-part program begins with project case studies that demonstrate how the classical tradition continues to inform and enrich the design of new buildings and places.
Part two introduces the grammar and syntax of the language that forms the foundation for these design traditions through freehand drawings of a classical order and their deployment within an architectural composition. This session provides an orientation to the nomenclature and proportional relationships of the classical orders and their constituent parts.
The Workshop culminates with a look at the adaptability of the language and the practice of measured and analytical drawing as a means for studying and documenting precedents to inform new works.
The ICAA's Workshops in Classical Architecture are generously funded by
The Benton Family Foundation.
