The Elements of Classical Architecture: Introduction to Moldings

When: 10:00 AM - 3:00 PM SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 30

Where:20 West 44th Street, Suite 310, New York, NY 10036

A good place to begin study of the classical language of architecture is with an overview of the geometry and terminology of classical moldings, the smallest classical parts. Moldings may be thought of as the a, b, c's of classical architecture. The classical orders and related forms are composed of a combination of these smaller elements and are therefore better understood when one is versed in the grammar of the individual parts. Moldings also represent, in minute form, some of the ideas that define classicism itself. Participants will learn how to distinguish major profile types and explore some of the guiding principles and theory involved in their design and application.
