Andrea Palladio’s The Four Books on Architecture is unquestionably the most influential architectural treatise ever written. The treatise’s Book IV consists of Palladio’s illustrations and descriptions of twenty-five Roman temples. From his study of their ruins Palladio produced ninety-seven pages of elevations, sections, plans, and details depicting his concepts of the temples’ original appearance.

Join architectural historian Calder Loth for an AIA-credited online lecture that offers a glimpse of the riches of Book IV and presents numerous examples of structures that drew inspiration from Palladio’s plates.

As part of the ICAA's ongoing series, What We're Watching, we are inviting members of our community to offer their list of recommended at-home viewing, with special attention given to films that appeal to lovers of architecture and design. This week we are happy to welcome Benjamin Salling, a Project Architect with ICAA Member Firm Patrick Ahearn Architect in Boston. Ben is also an Alum of Member Firms Robert A.M. Stern Architects, Ferguson & Shamamian Architects, and Peter Pennoyer Architects.

On January 1st, 2021, the new year began with a gift to New York City that offered a note of hope and optimism for the future: the new Moynihan Train Hall. This inventive re-adaptation of McKim, Mead, and White's iconic James A. Farley Post Office Building opened to the public for the first time on that day, and ICAA Member Firms were responsible for one of the centerpieces of the project. The main Art Deco-inspired clock in the new hall is designed by Peter Pennoyer Architects with a face designed by Dyad Design, and was fabricated by Hyde Park Mouldings.

Please note that these events are free and open to ICAA Members only. Non-members will have the opportunity to watch a recording of the events afterwards.

In making homes, how do you take, as Weaver said of Lutyens, adversity and turn it into amenity? This question has had the attention of the firm Oliver Cope Architect since Oliver’s first house in 1985.

Please join the Institute of Classical Architecture & Art (ICAA) for a virtual lecture featuring Partners Oliver Cope, Rita Marks, and Olivia Rowan, as they discuss the design and revitalization of some of New York and Long Island’s most treasured homes, all featured in their new book, Oliver Cope Architect: City Country Sea. This lecture is moderated by award-winning architectural historian and journalist, Clive Aslet.

For over fifty years, Robert A.M. Stern Architects has designed extraordinary houses and residences around the world, each suffused with a rich understanding of traditional architecture and an intuitive sense of how to shape a home to the needs of modern life. Many of the firm’s important early commissions were houses, and while RAMSA has since evolved into an internationally renowned with an extraordinarily broad portfolio, an unflagging dedication to timeless residential design has remained a cornerstone of its practice.

Join four of the firm’s distinguished residential Partners and coauthors of the new book Houses: Robert A.M. Stern Architects—Roger Seifter, Randy Correll, Grant Marani, and Gary Brewer—in conversation with Architectural Digest Features Editor, Sam Cochran, for an in-depth look at some of their recent and most exciting projects from around the country in a variety of different architecture styles, many of which have never been seen before.
