CLASSICAL BUILDINGS: BENDING THE RULES! with Coby Everdell

Tuesday, March 26, 2019 - 6:30pm
LOCATION: SF Design Center, 101 Henry Adams Street, Suite 424

2019 Education Series
Sponsored by Tucker & Marks and The Wiseman Group Interior Design

In this illustrated lecture, we introduce a deeper understanding of classicism and one of its greatest virtues: the ability to modify designs to accommodate changes in program or site conditions. Appearing regular and rule driven, classicism in place is much more unpredictable than perceived at first glance!

Join Coby Everdell, Northern California Chapter Vice-President and Education Chair, for a lively discussion of the three major rule benders: Phidias at the Parthenon, Apollodorus at the Pantheon, and Palladio in Venice. At first glance appearing canonically rigid, things are not what they seem; in each case, the architect worked apparent magic by using the canon creatively to solve site driven challenges. This lecture is an antidote to the misconception that the rules of classicism are inflexible and don't respond to the difficulties of design. Find out more about the mysteries and anomalies of these buildings and what we can learn from classicism in general, as applicable in every design decision. All designers welcome!
