Virtually all of the masters of Modern architecture were traditionally trained. Many of the subsequent generations of Modernists, however, trained only within the context of the Modern movement and designed without the breadth of historical knowledge that their esteemed predecessors had.

History has a continuous evolution through to Modernism that contemporary and traditional architects benefit from knowing. Nowhere is this more true than in Washington, where one of the greatest urban plans ever executed contains the DNA for moving forward with an awareness of the past.

Join AIA|DC and ICAA for a lecture by award-winning architect Mark McInturff, FAIA, that will showcase projects that illustrate fundamentals of traditional architecture — expression of structure, rhythm, axis, alignment, and proportion — as created within the ethics and vocabulary of the Modern movement.
