20 credits towards the Certificate in Classical Architecture | 20 AIA CES Learning Units|Elective
Building on successful ICAA Drawing Tours in Williamsburg, Charleston, and Savannah, the 2022 Christopher H. Browne Washington DC Drawing Tour is a four-day program to intensely study, through measured and analytical field drawing, the rich diversity of architecture and urbanism of the Federal City of Washington, DC. The techniques of careful field drawing in a sketchbook will be explored in-depth, and have been used by architects and designers beginning in the Renaissance to document as well as utilize the precedents in new design.The course will feature daily visits and studies of historically-significant and key examples of monumental classical architecture, nineteenth-century houses, and the neighborhood of Georgetown to study the details of one of America's most beautiful gardens.The program will feature opportunities to study a range of architectural scales and subjects, including urbanism, plans and elevations, exterior stone detailing, interiors, and the study of the classical elements, including the orders. Each day will conclude with a review and discussion of the drawings.
A draft itinerary for the program, along with the materials list, is now available to view here. Please note that the itinerary is subject to minor changes.
