The Art & Science of Ornament Course: Advanced
Hosted by the Utah Chapter | 6 AIA Learning Units | HSW
Ornament — that which beautifies and adds grace to our buildings — plays a more important role in our everyday experience and well-being than previously understood. Join Matthew McNicholas, AIA, for two hands-on classes to explore the science-based case for the use of ornament in architecture.
In conjunction with the Utah Valley University Spring Lecture Series, architect Matthew McNicholas, AIA will present two hands-on classes — beginning and advanced — that build on the principles of ornament from his lecture. Matthew will take students from the why to the how of ornament through a series of design exercises. Bring your sketchbook and sign up for both classes or just one, depending on your experience level.
Architectural ornament can profoundly impact us on conscious and unconscious levels, yet the principles of design and composition for ornament are not well known today. What makes some architectural ornament lyrical and beautiful and others dull and uninspiring? What gives it life? Matthew McNicholas, AIA, will take students through a series of design exercises to learn the fundamental principles that govern successful architectural ornament. Bring pencils and sketchbooks for this hands-on workshop by one of the most sought-after consultants in architectural ornament today.
Prior to the workshops, please join us for a free lecture on February 12th, 6:30 pm in RM CS404 at Utah Valley University.
This event is hosted by an ICAA Chapter. Please check the Chapter website, or contact the Chapter directly, for the most up-to-date details including dates, times, and pricing.
