NEW ONLINE VIDEO
On a recent journey to India, architects Michael Imber (Michael G. Imber, Architects) and Tom Kligerman (Ike Kligerman Barkley) had the opportunity to explore centuries of architectural exchange and influence, and to observe, photograph, and paint a number of remarkable sites.

In a new video from the ICAA, learn about what surprised them about this visit, and what inspiration they each bring to their own practices.

NEW ONLINE EDUCATIONAL VIDEO
New construction must conform to building codes that would be utterly foreign to architects past. This should be no hindrance, however, to inventive and inspired architecture.

In an exclusive ICAA presentation, Mason Roberts, a designer at Robert A. M. Stern Architects, guides the contemporary practitioner through the intricacies of building codes, focusing on specific case studies that present unique challenges, and how they have been elegantly solved.

ICAA MEMBER PROJECTS
The ICAA is pleased to shine a spotlight on projects from our member firms. One vast undertaking promising to change the fabric of a city has been recently profiled in Traditional Building , and we are pleased to feature it on classicist.org : the Courier Square development by Robert A.M. Stern Architects, which is bringing a high density neighborhood to life in Charleston using a traditional and vernacular architectural language.

ICAA MEMBER ARTICLES
Join Valentin Goux, Vice President at ICAA member firm RINCK, on an academic and historical exploration of chinoiserie, that particular European interpretation of Chinese decorative arts that resulted in a melange of materials, motifs, and methodology which, though quite removed from its origins, exerted powerful influence on centuries of European design.

Valentin brings an informed understanding to his review of the origins, export, and re-interpretations of the style, accompanied by his historical and aesthetic perspective.

HIGHLIGHTS FROM THE ARCHIVES
The ICAA's Breakfast & Books series allows architects, designers, landscape architects, authors, photographers, and other extraordinary talents to share the inspiration they find in books, as part of a collaboration with Rizzoli, hosted at an in-person breakfast at the Rizzoli bookstore in New York City.

In this May 2017 installment from the ICAA's archives, designer Frank de Biasi discusses The Caliph’s House: A Year in Casablanca by Tahir Shah, and chronicles his own journey renovating a historic home in Tangier, Morocco.

ICAA ONLINE
