UPCOMING FLORIDA PROGRAMS

Since the ICAA Florida Chapter’s founding, educational programs have been an integral part of our mission to advance the contemporary practice and appreciation of the classical tradition. From drawing the classical orders, to ink wash rendering and watercolor, and proportions courses, education is a vital component of the Chapter’s programming each year.

The educational programs are created with the intention of making them accessible for classical enthusiasts of all backgrounds. Additionally, many of our courses also qualify as continuing education for architects who are registered with the AIA. Many of the classes also apply towards the 100 credit hours one needs to earn the Certificate in Classical Architecture from the Institute.  More information on the certificate program can be found here. Whether you are an architect, a design professional, an artist, or an individual with a passion for classical architecture and the allied arts, we hope you will find a course that inspires you here.

Introduction to Mouldings

Friday, March 29, 2019 

4:00 pm – 7:00 pm

University of Miami, School of Architecture

3 AIA Learning Units & 3 Credits towards the Certificate of Classical Architecture will be offered

ICAA MEMBERS: $30       GENERAL PUBLIC:  $50

STUDENTS: Students are FREE with valid ID (please register with director@flclassicist.org)

A good place to begin the study of the classical language of architecture is with an overview of the terminology, geometry, and purpose of classical mouldings, the smallest classical parts. Mouldings may be thought of as the molecular units of classical architecture. The classical orders and extended apparatus of classical forms are composed of some combination of these smaller elements. As individual units, and in combination, mouldings exemplify underlying ideas prevalent at all scales of classical design.

At the end of the course participants will be able to:

  • An introduction to the origins and terminology of classical mouldings
  • A study of the geometry and design of common profile types by shape and function
  • The correct uses and purpose of mouldings and methods of scale and proportion and their application

Drawing the Doric Order

Saturday, March 30, 2019 

9:00 am – 2:00 pm

5 AIA Learning Units & 5 Credits towards the Certificate of Classical Architecture will be offered

ICAA MEMBERS $60     GENERAL PUBLIC: $80

STUDENTS: Students are FREE with valid ID (please register with director@flclassicist.org)

Acting as a base to the wider canon of classical architecture, the five classical orders have been used since antiquity as a means of proportioning buildings in a harmonious way, while simultaneously giving logic and meaning. The purpose of this course is to provide an in-depth study of the Doric Order, including its history, proportioning, and meaning. The history portion will cover the evolution of this order from its roots in Ancient Hellenic Cultures in the near East through its rediscovery in the modern-day movement of New Classicism. The study of Doric proportions will include a hand-drawn tutorial in which participants will compose the base, capital and entablature of the order according to the American academic William Ware. Ware, who founded the schools of architecture at Columbia and MIT, in turn took his cues from the Renaissance treatise of the architect Giacomo Barozzi da Vignola.

 

 

 

At the end of the course participants will be able to:

  • A brief introduction of the classical orders
  • A history of the Doric Order, showing its evolution and variations from Antiquity to the Present
  • A look at the application of the Doric Order to actual buildings and design elements
  • To learn a system for laying out the Doric Order for a given set of dimensions in which individual components are proportioned as units of measure based on column diameter.
  • Explore syntax related to using the Doric Order in architectural design including the pediment and intercolumniation
