Students receive foundational lessons in how to understand classical/traditional architecture, in order to compose sophisticated, meaningful and beautiful designs. Some of those lessons include:
The study of precedence, in analyzing and learning from exemplary buildings including visits to those in the Washington D.C. Region
  • The study of the classical orders as a compositional device through rigorous drawing.
  • The study of classical compositional principles, from using proportion to the application of details
  • Learning to compose buildings using the orders and principles of classical through rigorous and compelling design exercise and projects.
  • Learning to compose urban spaces using principles of classical and traditional urbanism as an extension of architecture into the public/civic realm.
  • Learning how to craft communicative and beautiful drawings with line work, sheet composition, shading, shadowing and material rendering
