Workshop in Classical Architectural Design: University of Colorado Denver
5 AIA HSWs and 5 credits towards the Certificate in Classical Architecture
This workshop, presented in collaboration with University of Colorado Denver, introduces the practice of classical architecture as a contemporary discipline. Traditional architectural design today encompasses work that employs the grammar of the Classical language and the adaptation of its principles in regional settings. This spectrum of expression is found in the full range of buildings comprising the traditional city and its neighborhoods, from private to civic edifices.
The workshop begins with case studies of recent projects that demonstrate how architects utilize the wealth of material found in historical precedents to inform new work. Following this, hand drawing exercises provide an introduction to the vocabulary of the Classical language, its fusion of formal and tectonic qualities, and capacity for making buildings and places intelligible.
