New Classical Architecture Program at the University of Colorado Denver

What follows is an excerpt from the Period Homes Forum essay in which Thomas P. Matthews, Jr. of the Institute for Classical Architecture and Art Rocky Mountain chapter indicates that a classical architecture program will be started soon at the University of Colorado, Denver.

a new program soon to be offered by the University of Colorado Denver UCD, where graduate students will be able to earn an ICAA Certificate in Classical architectural studies founded on the Beaux Arts paradigm. The school is recognizing that there is a growing market, or niche, for Classically trained students. We gathered in the large living room and assistant dean Taisto Makela gave an illustrated talk entitled, “Why the Classical?” He began by saying that Classical architecture is not to the exclusion of other forms and that Classicists are not the “style police.” There is room for all kinds of architecture, but it so happens that our passion lies with the abundantly rich Classical tradition.
