It’s a good time to be a classicist in Los Angeles. Especially next week.
The Institute of Classical Architecture & Arts So Cal has two great programs in the Los Angeles area next week. On Tuesday evening the studious amongst us will be slicing and dicing the Corinthian Order with instructor, architect and geometrician Dom Forte.
The rest of us will be relaxing over dinner in Benedict Canyon Thursday night with architectural expert Edward Bosley. Director of Pasadena’s landmark Gamble House, Mr. Bosley will trace the origins of the Craftsman style, one of Southern California’s most distinctive regional expressions. What’s more, our dinner and talk will be at the Spanish Colonial clubhouse of the Beverly Hills Women’s Club in Benedict Canyon. Built in 1925 by architects Gable and Lyons, the location itself is an architectural treat.
We are excited. We hope you can make it!
