ICAA – Northern California

The Institute of Classical Architecture & Art’s mission is to advance the appreciation and practice of the principles of traditional architecture and its allied arts by engaging educators, professionals, students, and enthusiasts.

ICAA Northern California Announces Partnership with Academy of Art University in San Francisco

We are proud to announce the achievement of an innovative education partnership with Academy of Art University. The first of its kind in the Western United States, this exclusive partnership launching in Spring 2022 exemplifies our Chapter’s mission of expanding student access to unique educational opportunities that further the study of the principles and practices of classical architecture and design.

Our Chapter offers a wide variety of educational courses in the ICAA’s core curriculum and related subjects for professional development, students, and personal enrichment.


The Northern California Chapter presents unique local events and educative programs for professionals, students, and the general public. Join us and experience all the ICAA community has to offer.


The Julia Morgan Awards recognizes and celebrates architects and designers, artisans and builders, students and patrons for their excellence in the contemporary practice and support of classical and traditional design.

Your financial support allows us to continue and grow our mission of education. In the current Coronavirus environment, the Chapter has continued to operate at full capacity offering virtual education programs and developing education initiatives to inspire the future classicists of tomorrow. Though our ingenuity, resourcefulness and resilience has kept our mission of education and community programming alive, we have been greatly impacted by the loss of our in-person events which sustain the Chapter. Your generous donation today means more than ever – thank you for your support!


The Northern California Chapter has a strong and vibrant member base of architects, designers, builders, allied partners, artisans and enthusiasts. Enjoy unique benefits, exceptional programs, informative tours, and discounts. Become a member today!
