Join the ICAA in welcoming Mark McInturff. In this talk, architect Mark McInturff FAIA will discuss the common roots of Classical and Modern Architecture.
Beginning with the training and early work of the iconic Modernists including Mies, Le Corbusier, Wright and Kahn, the talk will illustrate common denominators of both directions, including structural expression, plan hierarchies, and material expression.
McInturff will illustrate these parallels with historic work and his own.
The successes and failures of modernism as compared to Classicism will be discussed openly.
All tickets include a copy of Mark McInturff’s book, “Home/Work”. (limited quantities – first come, first serve)
Mark will be signing them (and sketching in them – in color) after the talk.
