Architecture – Contemporary Classicism: The Orders

Please contact us for future course dates.

Course information

Please note: This course will not be running in Summer 2021. Please contact us to ask about future dates.

Course description

This week-long workshop is delivered in partnership with The International Network for Traditional Building, Architecture & Urbanism (INTBAU). Students will be introduced to the classical orders and the associated architectural grammar and design principles which the orders underpin. A series of lectures by course tutors and guest specialists of international repute will introduce the role of the orders in architectural design from antiquity to the present day, from the scale of the city to the building and the interior, and with reference to global sources. An underlying concern of the course is the consideration of classicism as a living language of architecture.

The main focus of the course will be each student's drawing of a classical order at full scale, including every element from base to capital and entablature, and the mouldings which make up these parts. This workshop will be fully supported by experienced teaching staff and all of the work composited into a single communal drawing at the end of the week.

Students will gain a broad understanding of the approach, ethos and culture of architecture at Kingston School of Art (KSA). For those interested in further architectural study, and in particular the classical architectural design teaching in our MArch Architecture (RIBA 2) course, this short course is invaluable.
