Welcome to the New York Architecture Diary, your essential guide to architecture exhibitions and events taking place across the city.
The gothic is an important complement to the classical in a study of traditional architecture. This class will provide an introduction to the elements of English and collegiate gothic architecture for students with some background in art of architecture. At the end of this course, students will be able to draw and name many of the elements found within this style, and will leave the class with a collection of notated sketches of molding profiles, their appropriate design context, as well as a simple clay model of a gothic molding. All of this will serve as a useful starting point for a student’s own continued education on the gothic style.
