20 credits towards the Certificate in Classical Architecture | 20 AIA CES Learning Units|Elective
The ICAA’s drawing and study courses are centered around the long tradition of studying architecture in the field through measured, analytical and perspective drawing in sketchbook. These techniques have been used by practitioners since the renaissance to document precedents for reference in contemporary design.The 2021 Christopher H. Browne Savannah Drawing Tour provides an opportunity to study, through field drawing, the rich diversity of architecture and unique urbanism of Savannah, Georgia - a living laboratory of design, building, and planning from the 18th century to the present day. Each day is structured around studying of representative examples of building types that form the fabric of Savannah, with a focus on their composition, detail, and contribution to the urbanism and landscape of the city.Drawing locations will include the Independent Presbyterian Church, Juliette Gordon Low House, Owens Thomas House, Harper Fowlkes House, Telfair Academy, US Custom House, Scarbrough House, and the Andrew Low House. The four-day program will also include discussion and drawing studies of the squares of Savannah, and access to the recently restored Armstrong-Kessler Mansion.
