The Institute of Classical Architecture & Art (ICAA) is the leading national nonprofit organization dedicated to advancing the practice and appreciation of the classical tradition in architecture and the allied arts.

Originally founded as the Charlotte Chapter, the North Carolina Chapter grew in 2015 to include architects, landscape architects, interior designers, builders, developers, artists, craftsmen, vendors, and others across the entire state.

Our mission is dedicated to advancing the contemporary practice and appreciation of the classical tradition in our regional architecture, urbanism and the allied arts. We fulfill our mission through several program areas including education, media, events and advocacy. This includes:

  • Private tours of significant residences rarely opened to the public.
  • Educational meetings held in local artisan workshops, design offices and product showrooms.
  • Classes developing skills such as architectural rendering, watercolors and classical detailing.
  • Lectures given by prominent speakers from around the world.
