Spring Studio – Introduction to the Classical Elements: Design and Proportion of Mouldings
Introduction to the Classical Elements: Design and Proportion of Mouldings
Hosted by the Florida Chapter
3 AIA Learning Units|Elective and 3 credits towards the Certificate in Classical Architecture
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.
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.
