Some of the most successful kitchens combine a traditional look with modern appliances, lighting, and other state of the art devices. This seminar will focus on the integration of Classical language into the design of the kitchen for the 21st century. By examining case studies, participants will learn how to use the moldings and Classical orders to create well-proportioned and beautiful kitchens. Additional topics to be discussed include an overview of the history of the kitchen, cabinetry details, materials, and lighting. Learning objectives for this course include:
-Apply Classical Orders to the design of contemporary kitchens for historic and new buildings
-Become familiar with the range of applied passive technologies and their regional variations
