Please join the Washington Mid Atlantic Chapter for its Fall Symposium at the Cosmos Club in Washington, DC. The topic for discussion is the legacy of the Roman Empire’s building traditions on the development of Islamic architecture in Spain.
Professor Steven W. Semes, Director of the Graduate Program in Historic Preservation at the School of Architecture at the University of Notre Dame will lead a panel discussion that will address why the teaching of cultural exchanges is an important facet in training contemporary architects. Multicultural influences in Western architecture have been significant since Roman antiquity, when buildings responded to local traditions as well as to more universal patterns of Roman building practice.
Attendees of the lecture are eligible to receive 1.5 AIA approved Learning Units.
Cost: $30 for ICAA members, $50 for non-members, $10 for students, and free for all L’Enfant members.
