Contemporary Classical Design

April 22, 2020 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

The artistic refinement of the classical tradition has no single author, but rather represents the cumulative wisdom of many civilizations and times. The study of the classical orders and precedent buildings holds critical lessons for contemporary architectural practice. It is through practice applying the lessons from this rich history that an architect becomes fluent in aesthetic forms and mature compositions.

Brad Houston received his Master of Architecture from the University of Notre Dame.
