In the first two parts of our 3-part series, Erik Evens (principal, Evens Architects) will introduce us to the building blocks that, when used properly, can be found at the heart of all great classical architecture in his lecture: Introduction to Classical Mouldings Part I and II.
This essential primer will be followed by the third installment of our series: Designing the Classical Interior, presented by Jim Collins (principal, James S. Collins, Architect). In this final lecture, Collins will draw from, build on, and delve deeper into concepts that Evens introduces during the first two sessions of our series.
