INTRODUCTION TO THE CLASSICAL ORDERS
With Brier Tomlinson

Join us for an introduction to the five principle column types of classical architecture and their associated elements. This lecture provides an overview of the core canonical reference literature on the classical orders; discussion of the five major orders and their principal variants; a general introduction to the basic rules, measurements, and proportions used in the composition of the orders; and illustration of precedents in the use, expression and application of the orders both historically and in the present. Focusing on the orders in the context of architecture, the course also provides a useful context for design professionals and interested laypersons and is an excellent prequel for students who are inspired to continue their education with more in-depth study of the individual orders as offered by the Institute. All  designers welcome! AIA credits available.
