Best University to study Classical Architecture?

Hi,

I am curious as to what Universities world wide specialize in Classical or Historic architecture?

My primary interests are in studying Medieval, Renaissance, and Baroque architecture. However, I am also apt for studying Classical Thai, Chinese, Indian, and Japanese styles.

I am familiar with the Classic Architecture program at University of Notre Dame, though I was wondering if there are any other Universities which specialize in teaching historic architecture.

Also, I should mention I have no interest in studying that travesty which we refer to as contemporary/modern "architecture".

Maybe you should study history and from that point of view specialize yourself into architecture.

I'd recommend an American university. In Europe you'll only find hardcore modernist profs and expats. Sad, but true.


I just hope there will be some ideological transformation of modernist architects and professors in the near future.

In the meanwhile, I added some universities that teach traditional / new classical architecture:

New Classical Architecture - Academic Education Institutes


In the United Kingdom
The Prince's Foundation for Building Community in London

In the United States
Andrews University in Berrien Springs, Michigan
New School for Traditional Architecture & Urbanism in Charleston, South Carolina
University of Colorado in Denver, Colorado
Judson University in Elgin, Illinois
University of Miami in Miami, Florida
Grand Central Academy of Art by the Institute of Classical Architecture and Art (ICAA) in New York City, New York
University of Notre Dame School of Architecture in Notre Dame, Indiana


Btw, this thread should be moved to the international Classic Forum.

exactly, in countries like Poland there is remotely no classic arch. (eventually single courses) education, so 99% architekt, doesn't have even basics of classic design.

The University of Illinois in Champaign Illinois has a school of architecture worthy of note. It has strong ties to Chicago architectural standards and as such holds hope for future craftsmen.

What is the purpose of the degree you are looking for? It sounds like you are describing an academic degree that would lead to teaching. If you are looking for architecture programs, the vast majority prepare for the professional field of architecture and would not focus on a specific category of architecture within the title. That is true in the US.

The best undergrad school of architecture in the US is Cornell.

Let's collect academic institutions and study advice for classicals here:

The New York School of Interior Design (Est. 1916) offers a Basic Interior Design Certificate which can be completed entirely online or in class in NYC. The curriculum is very classically oriented with a number of courses focused explicitly on the history of design. The school also has strong ties with the ICAA (Institute of Classical Art and Architecture). In addition, many new classical architects (Peter Pennoyer and RAMSA associates) frequent the school with lectures or serve as faculty members/advisers.

Furthermore, NYSID offers a BA program in the History of the Interior and Decorative Arts.

Link Here:

Lastly, the school was ranked #3 for 2015 of America's Top Interior Design Schools by the acclaimed design council, Design Intelligence.

6 Years since this thread...time flies!

Thanks to these forums, we have become much more educated since then with regards to scholastic instruction of the classics. We have also witnessed the growth of new academic offerings such as U Denver's CARTA program.

So I proudly present our best, studious student: Hed Kandi!

The MSCD is a 30 elective credit graduate level concentration, providing advanced study for those pursuing career paths in classical and traditional architectural design and planning.

The MSCD program provides instruction in the language and use of classical and vernacular design and introduces a broad range of architectural and urban precedents and methodologies for adapting relevant historical models to contemporary exigencies.

The program equips participants with the theoretical and practical skill sets to become informed and judicious practitioners of traditional design and provides a framework of general processes and principles with which to adapt and evolve traditional architecture and urban patterns to modern programmatic requirements and client markets.

It aims to foster enduring design and planning strategies by introducing resources and skills with which to study and draw upon time-tested models for purposes of informing contemporary building applications. The program provides the critical tools through which our architectural and urban heritage may be intelligently engaged, evaluated and utilized to inspire modern building practices and design solutions that sustainably enhance, amend and repair the built environment for the long term.

In addition, Georgia Tech also offers a seven-week summer program on the art and architecture of Classical Greece and Italy.
