Event description
A Course on Architectural Literacy, by Calder Loth, Senior Architectural Historian, Virginia Department of Historic Resources.

About this Event

This course is designed to enable people to discover the visual fascination of architecture, the most accessible of the arts. Although classical is all around us, most people miss appreciating the richness of these splendid works because they don’t know how to “read” buildings. Using many examples, both famous and ordinary, the course explores why classical buildings look the way they do.

This course covers the basics of the classical language, including design details and the origins of various architectural motifs. Aesthetic principles are explained by contrasting ‘literate’ with ‘illiterate’ buildings.

This course provides an in-depth but digestible understanding of our classical heritage and will appeal to architects, interior designers, contractors, old-house buffs, remodelers, realtors, and just about anybody who likes to look at buildings.
