ICAA Intensive

The Intensive is an eight-day immersion in the ICAA’s core curriculum. The program is designed for professionals and students with limited time who seek a methodical introduction to the language of classical architecture.

The week culminates in a studio project in which students use the classical canon in the design of a small building. Students are guided through a design process rooted in the Beaux-Arts system in which an initial parti is developed during an esquisse and a charrette into a finished design proposal.

The Intensive program also satisfies the core course requirements for the ICAA's Certificate in Classical Architecture.

Location: San Francisco War Memorial & Performing Arts Center Green Room, 401 Van Ness Avenue, San Francisco, CA

Cost: $2,000 for ICAA members, $2,100 for non-members, $1,250 for students;scholarship opportunities available
