CLASSICAL ARCHITECTURE: Then and Now
This lecture will employ extensive visual images and explore the vocabulary of
classical architecture. The 2500 year old language of architectural details is
based on a flexible system of symbols that adapts
and endures as culture and technology change.
The first hour will introduce many basic elements
of classical architecture from the Greek, Roman
and Renaissance worlds, including the columnar
orders and their meaning. The second hour will
explore outstanding examples of current classical
design in America, Britain and Italy.
Presenter: Elizabeth Meredith Dowling is an
architectural historian and, until 2005, a registered
architect in Georgia. She received her Bachelor of
Architecture from Georgia Tech in 1971, a Master of
Architecture from the University of Illinois in 1972 and
a Ph.D. in Architecture from the University of
Pennsylvania in 1981. She now holds the title of Professor Emerita in Architecture at
Georgia Tech. She taught courses on Renaissance history and Classical design theory
and she developed the College of Architecture Summer Program in Italy and Greece.
