The Institute of Classical Architecture & Art Utah Chapter (ICAA Utah) is a valuable educational resource serving the state of Utah. Originally settled by both Mormon pioneers and other western migrants in the mid-19th Century, the region is home to a rich architectural legacy, including many well-preserved historic towns, a Beaux-Arts style state capitol, and several notable examples of a unique building type, the Mormon Temple. The ICAA Utah Chapter's goal is to train professionals and students in classical design and the traditional building arts by providing continuing education courses, lectures, salons, and hands-on instruction.
The Rising Vitruvians are the Utah Chapter's group of emerging professionals. Emerging Professionals groups connect students, young professionals, and developing careerists including teachers, practitioners, and enthusiasts with the ICAA through networking and educational programming. Creating communities of emerging professionals serves to introduce participants to the ICAA's mission to promote the appreciation of classical architecture, urbanism, and the allied arts.
