After learning more, we hope you will join our effort to make traditional design lessons available for architecture, landscape, and urban design students today by including us in your year end giving. A gift of any amount helps, for the future of traditional design in higher education is entirely in your hands.
Thank you all for your dedication, talent, and the inspiration that your work and wisdom provide us here as we help the phoenix of tradition rise anew,
Precedent has long been integral to architecture. In days past, it was based in history, that which has come before. Not so much today. Precedent, as architecture itself, has found its origins in odd and different places. This talk strives to understand precedent in the architecture of today as its incorporation into the work of David M. Schwarz Architects.
Renowned for their new performing arts centers, sports arenas, urban revitalizations, and numerous civic, cultural, educational, health-care, mixed-use, and multi-family projects, David M. Schwarz Architects sees architecture as both a service and an art. They focus on crafting sustainable, human-centered places in stewardship of the public realm; a philosophy they have studied and developed through their planning and design projects in urban environs since their founding in 1978 in Washington, DC.
Mr. Schwarz received his B.A. at St. John’s College in Annapolis, MD, and Master of Architecture at Yale University. He currently serves as Chairman of the Yale School of Architecture Dean’s Council; a member of the Executive Committee of the Yale University Capital Campaign; and a jury member of the Richard H. Driehaus Prize of the University of Notre Dame School of Architecture. Additionally, he serves as the Jury Chairman for the Vincent J. Scully Prize Fund Endowment of the National Building Museum.
Thanks to the Richard H. Driehaus Foundation, this lecture is free and open to all. RSVP required to attend. RSVP to: email@example.com or (303) 315-0063.
CARTA’s Director, Christine G. H. Franck, joined the College of Architecture and Planning in October 0f 2013 to establish and develop CARTA. Among her first activities in early 2014 was to deliver a lecture exploring contemporary classical and traditional architecture and urbanism in a lecture sponsored by the Institute of Classical Architecture & Art Rocky Mountain Chapter and held at the College.
