The morning session of the course will introduce the philosophy and elements of classical architecture and their interiors.
The session will focus on the application of the design principles that are common to the great buildings and interiors of the past.

Topics will include:
Learning the appropriate use and configuration of columns, cornices, wainscoting, windows and doors
Time tested methods of creating baseboards, wainscoting, chair rails, door and window casings
The elements, proportional systems, and composition of interior spaces
Measured drawings of traditional buildings and interiors

***Lunch will be provided along with presentation by seminar sponsors Hyde Park Moulding***

Participants will receive rare handouts that have been used by craftsman for centuries to aid in creating timeless interiors.

During the Afternoon, the class will tour the interiors of Howard Van Doren Shaw's Second Presbyterian Church, H.H. Richardson's Glessner House, and the oldest house in Chicago, the Greek Revival Henry B. Clarke House; the tour will focus on the application of design principles in real context learned in the morning session.

Sunday, April 13th , 9:00 am until 1 pm
The Glessner House Museum

The Sunday morning class will design and draw a classical interior, applying the information presented during the previous day's presentation. The class will be assisted by the instructor in generating a floor plan and elevations using class discussion, handouts and measured drawings.

Instructor James Collins recently presented a seminar on the use of historic precedent in the practice of contemporary traditional architecture at the Traditional Building Conference and Exhibition in Winston Salem, North Carolina.
He authored the introductory essay for the 2000 edition of the Monograph of the Work of Mellor, Meigs & Howe originally published in 1923.

Mr. Collins's projects have been featured in New Old House, Period Homes & Washington Life Magazines and A Decade of Art and Architecture. He practices in New York City and Greensboro, North Carolina.
