Dan & Gemma Camp Workshop in Classical Design – 4 LU, 2 HSW

March 20, 2015 @ 1:00 pm - March 21, 2015 @ 12:00 pm


The Institute of Classical Architecture and Art (ICAA) in conjunction with the School of Architecture at Mississippi State University is pleased to announce the Dan and Gemma Camp Workshop in Classical Architectural Design. The program is made possible by an endowed gift from Dan Camp, founder and developer of Starkville’s Cotton District development.

Participation in this FREE workshop will provide 6 CEUs including 2 HSW credits!

Open to friends of the school; builders; practicing architects; MSU School of Architecture students; and MSU College of Architecture, Art, and Design students, this workshop will provide an introduction to the practice of classical architectural design.

A series of presentations beginning early in the afternoon of Friday, March 20 and continuing through March 21 (see schedule below), will be held in Starkville, MS, at the School of Architecture and will introduce the language and principles of classical architectural design and traditional urbanism and its practice today. The day will conclude with a guided tour of Starkville’s historic Cotton District and a dinner reception at MSU’s Hunter Henry Center.

On Saturday, participants will have an opportunity to explore in greater depth the language of classical design through drawing and examine examples of classical design on the campus of Mississippi State.

The program will be presented by practitioners and educators active in the field of classical design.
