The I. Grace Company, Commissioned Private Residences, Inc. (“I-Grace”) and The Institute for Classical Architecture & Classical America (“ICA&CA;”) Southern California Chapter are pleased to announce The 2nd Annual I-Grace Scholarship Supporting Excellence in the Study and Practice of Artisanship and Architecture.
The ICA&CA;, founded as two separate nonprofit organizations in 1991 and 1968, respectively, merged in 2002 as a national nonprofit organization dedicated to advancing the classical tradition in architecture, urbanism and the allied arts. The organization is a valued educational resource for students of art, planning, and architecture, for design professionals and the general public assisted today by a growing network of regional and local chapters.
I-Grace is a national builder of luxury private residences with offices in New York and Los Angeles. It has been their longstanding belief that it is important to support the design community, with whom they work so closely, through professional organizations and charities. I-Grace believes this type of classical instruction will benefit the Southern California design community and that an understanding of the fundamentals of classical architecture will benefit an industry professional’s overall skill, whether they are classists or modernists.
The $2,500.00 scholarship that I-Grace will award applies to the 2011 Winterim Professional Intensive: The Elements of Classical Architecture program at the ICA&CA; national headquarters in New York City. The scholarhip, which is comprised of two parts, will include $1,500.00 to cover the entire cost of tuition and an additonal $1,000.00 to offset travel expenses to New York City. The 2011 Winterim session will commence on Friday, January 28, 2011 and will continue through Saturday, February 5, 2011.
I-Grace is supporting this intensive program in the principles of classical tradition of design to address the growing demand for this kind of training. The Winterim session focuses on classical design core courses and is taught by professionals from the fields of architecture and the allied arts. The program is suited for practicing architects who have prior professional training and field experience, as well as students seeking to compliment their professional studies with classes in architectural classicism. The program is balanced between drawing studios, lectures and discussions, and brief tours throughout New York City, giving students an opportunity to witness this classical tradition firsthand.
