Classical and Traditional Design
Classical and traditional architecture are evolving in relation to new paradigms of research and practice, such as digital media and fabrication, sustainability, ecology, and emerging economies. A progressive classicism that seeks to address the pressing issues of our cities, towns and landscapes, is the basis for research spanning popular, professional, and academic discourse.

Since the mid 1980’s when Aldo Rossi produced his proposal for a “New Acropolis”
for the University of Miami School of Architecture, many faculty, students
and alumni have explored the possibilities of a modernism that reaches toward aspects of the classical, or a classical that is open to the paradigms, syntax, and techniques of the modern. The School currently offers a Certificate of Classical and Traditional Design

Ongoing Projects and Resources:

Institute of Classical Architecture. The School maintains an ongoing collaboration with the Institute of Classical Architecture

Classical Design Studio: Funded by William Harrison, an Atlanta-based architect, the Classical Design Studio is dedicated to the study of classical and traditional building techniques for contemporary cities. Each year, distinguished faculty in this field are invited to teach an upper level design studio.
