Richard Economakis Seminar “Designing the Orders”

Using Chicago as an urban ‘classroom’, this course will review the most important aspects of the Orders, including the stories of their origin and development, symbolic associations, proportions and refinements, and applications. While stressing the poetical nature and purpose of the classical architecture, the course will sensitize participants to the formal nuances and subtleties of classical buildings, and the sophistication of their designs. Instruction will include morning powerpoint and blackboard presentations, followed by afternoon sketching tours to key sites in the Loop and North Side, and along Michigan Avenue
