Principal Erik Evens will once again be traveling north to teach the "Classical Primer" for the Northern California Chapter of the Institute of Classical Architecture and Art. This fast paced and engaging introduction to the classical language of architecture kicks off the NorCal Chapter's education slate for 2016. If you are in the Bay Area, please join us at the Fort Mason Gatehouse on January 25th at 6:00 PM.

Event Description & Details

with Erik Evens
Principal, Evens Architects

Join us for an evening lecture course on the language and rationale of classical architecture. An introduction to the classical orders, this course is an overview of the elements of classical architecture: the core canonical reference literature, the basic rules, measurements, and proportions used in the classical architectural language, and the canon of the Orders of Architecture. Concluding with an exploration of the enduring appeal of classical architecture, Erik Evens helps students discover reasons to employ the language in their work, and to answer the question, "Why Classicism?" All  designers welcome! AIA credits available.

Our Thinking

The Mediterranean in Southern California

Architecture inspired by great traditions of the Mediterranean region has a long, rich history in California. The fruits of this long lineage flavor the character of our cities and dot the surrounding hillsides. At KAA Design, we have often found the Mediterranean architectures to be a perfect fit for our clients wishing to build here.
