Coffee and a Course: Art Nouveau and its Influence on Architecture, Feb. 5

Join AIA|DC and Nemetschek Vectorworks, Inc. to learn about the lives and legacies of two Art Nouveau masters, Victor Horta and Charles Rennie Mackintosh.

Belgian architect and designer Victor Horta is widely acknowledged as a leading figure in the Art Nouveau style that dominated late 19th century Europe. Scottish architect and artist Charles Rennie Mackintosh had a profound influence on European design as the Art Nouveau movement struggled to hold its ground against the overwhelming power of mass production and the strict demands of economic expediency.

While distinctly different in their responses to the Art and Crafts movement, both men made important contributions that are universally acknowledged.
