Last month, eighteen architects, interior designers, builders, and students of architecture joined the ICAA for our 2016 Winter Professional Intensive. The Intensive is a rigorous, immersive program that introduces participants to the ICAA’s core curriculum through classes in the classical orders, composition, proportion, drafting, observational drawing and painting, and the literature of classical architecture.
The Intensive culminates in the Classical Design Studio, in which participants develop their own classical design projects, garnering hands-on experience applying the methods and principles that have been covered throughout the program. This year, participants presented their design proposals to guest critics Mark Jackson, of Hamady Architects, and Thomas Noble, of Allan Greenberg Architect, and ICAA instructors Calder Loth, Michael Mesko, Martin Brandwein, Stephen Chrisman, and Steve Bass.
The ICAA would like to thank the instructors and critics for sharing their knowledge and expertise with this year’s participants, as well as the generous support of Karen Pascoe and John LaPolla Jr., of LaPolla Painting and Designs Studio, for helping to make the 2016 Winter Intensive a success.
Thanks also to the participants for traveling from across the country to attend the Winter Intensive and sharing their passion for classical architecture:

The application deadline for the ICAA’s 2016 Summer Studio in Classical Architecture is approaching! The four-week, immersive program (based in New York City, June 20th to July 16th) will introduce students to the skills, knowledge and resources essential to the practice and appreciation of classical design. Thanks to the The Richard H. Driehaus Charitable Lead Trust the ICAA is able to offer scholarships to ensure accessibility to the program for students of all financial backgrounds.
