Transformations in Classical Architecture
Hosted by the Florida Chapter | 1 AIA LU
A quiet revolution is unfolding in the realm of classical architecture today, as the environmental, technological, and economic demands of contemporary practice require levels of efficiency that were never previously expected. This new wave of modern classicism reflects a progressive approach, addressing the pressing needs of the present and future fabric of our cities, towns and landscapes. Edited by Victor Deupi, “Transformations in Classical Architecture” examines how classical – and traditional – architecture can evolve in relation to new paradigms of research and practice (digital media and fabrication, sustainability, ecology, and emerging economies).
Join the ICAA for a lecture that will examine this architectural transformation, featuring editor Victor Deupi as speaker.
At the end of the course participants will be able to:
Understand how classical architecture can evolve through new paradigms of research and practice
Understand various strains of contemporary classicism
Distinguish between orthodox and heterodox methodologies
See classicism within the larger panorama of contemporary architecture
