The Rocky LaFleur Memorial Educational Scholarship honors the life and legacy of Rocky LaFleur. Rocky was a Board member of the Southern California Chapter, a veteran design professional, and an exceptional human being. He mentored countless young design professionals – many of whom continue his work within our Chapter and beyond. Rocky inspired young people to pursue careers in design and to advance the ICAA mission. This scholarship, supporting students and emerging professionals living and/or working in Southern California to attend the ICAA’s educational programs, is a tribute to Rocky’s enduring legacy.
The inaugural scholarship is for the ICAA Intensive in Classical Architecture: New York. Among the ICAA’s most impactful and enduring education models is its Intensive Program – an eight-day course of study that introduces participants to the ICAA’s core curriculum in the classical orders, composition, proportion, drafting, observational drawing, and the literature of classical architecture.
Participants learn how to draw, render, and compose with the classical language, forming an understanding of the basic theoretical tenets on which the classical tradition is founded. Instruction is provided by professionals and educators active in the field of classical design. Classroom hours are balanced between studio work, lectures, and guided tours and visits. The week culminates in a studio project in which students design a small building using the classical canon. Students are guided through a design process rooted in the Beaux-Arts system in which an initial parti is developed during an esquisse and a charrette into a finished design proposal. The program concludes with a review by an esteemed panel of architects.
The Intensive program also satisfies the core course requirements for the ICAA’s certificate in Classical Architecture.
Please note that in addition to the programming offered January 8 - 15, there will be an optional Hand Drafting session held on Friday, January 7, 200, 6:00 - 9:00 PM.
This $5,000 scholarship is for tuition, travel and accommodations and is open to all students and emerging architects, interior designers, or artisans living and/or working in Southern California.
