Erik Evens, Instructor
4 AIA CES Learning Units|Elective and 4 credits towards the Certificate in Classical Architecture
For centuries, architects have measured great buildings of the past, drawing them in sketchbooks to serve as references for their work. Join instructor Erik Evens for an engaging immersion into the history, purpose and method of architectural measured drawing. The class will begin with an informative lecture on the legacy and importance of documenting historical architecture. Students will learn a simple and repeatable technique for producing measured drawings. Then, the class will move to the field, where students will learn by making their own measured drawings of details from the historic buildings on the campus of Cal Tech.
