9:00 AM – 12:00 PM Presentations/Discussions

12:00PM – Lunch following Presentations

 

WHERE

The Duke Mansion

400 Hermitage Road

Charlotte, NC 28207

 

First Session

A well-designed architectural millwork package adds value to your home and increases the health and well-being of the people living there. We will discuss the many components and challenges that can arise when working with raw materials and natural species of wood on the job site — challenges that if considered at the beginning stage of the design process, could maximize the value of the project relative to the budget and help to meet and exceed the client expectations.

 

Second Session

Participants will learn to design classically inspired rooms. The instructor will demonstrate how to design and assemble the classically inspired moldings and profiles of the interiors of the Duke Mansion (where the seminar will be held) using current wood moldings and profiles available today. Participants will discover how to design classically inspired rooms using simple and easy to understand guidelines used by builders and craftspeople for centuries.

THE ICAA WINTER INTENSIVE: THE ELEMENTS OF CLASSICAL ARCHITECTURE

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION
Among the ICAA’s most impactful and enduring education models is its Intensive Program in Classical Architecture – a seven to ten day course of study that introduces participants to the ICAA’s core curriculum through coursework in the classical orders, composition, proportion, drafting, observational drawing, and the literature of classical architecture.

Participants learn how to draw, render, and compose with the classical language to form an understanding of the basic theoretical tenets on which the classical tradition is founded. Instruction is provided by professionals and educators active in the field of classical design. Classroom hours are balanced between studio work, lectures, and guided tours and visits. The Intensive program also satisfies the core course requirements for the ICAA’s Certificate in Classical Architecture.
