Notre-Dame-de-Paris restoration  $72 (special price, normally $100) 

AIA approved course for Architects & Interior Designers - 4HSW CE/LU

Learning about major historical and religious buildings may help save them from accidental destruction, like the cathedral Notre Dame de Paris on the edge of a catastrophe after a fire. St. John the Divine in New York City, started in 1909 and not yet completed today, had a fire in 2001 damaging a large part of the building. Those, and the Washington National Cathedral, have an importance in the history of mankind, regardless of our Creed, and a value as a major part of the history of architecture. 
The building was on the edge of collapsing after the fire, problems of lead poisoning in the neighborhood were acute. Many architects proposed all sorts of restoration programs, one even considering putting a public swimming pool on the roof.
Restoration is fascinating, but takes time, from learning about the original building, how and when it was built and what were the materials use. Then there the search for what happen through the years, with remodeling and expansion.
Materials used in older buildings cannot always be found again. Then there the search for what may be appropriate. Regardless of the size and importance of a building, the idea is to keep it alive for many more years rather than tear it down.

CALIFORNIA & FLORIDA MODERNIST HOUSES COULD TEACH US ABOUT SUSTAINABILITY  $72 

(special price, normally $100) 

AIA approved course for Architects & Interior Designers - 4HSW CE/LU

Some architects between 1490 and 1967, like Richard Neutra, Rudolph Schindler, Charles Eames, Eero Saarinen, Pierre Koening and many others involved in the California Case Study Houses, wanted to design and built simple houses mostly geared to the return of thousands of GI who would be looking for houses where to start a family. Similarly, at the same time the Sarasota School of Architecture Movement with Paul Rudolph, Ralph Twitchell, Philip Hiss the developer, Victor Lundy, Jack West, Tim Seibert and many others, wanted also to built simple houses, in tune with the local climate, for people who originally were visiting the area in the winter. There are many similarities between the two movements, Both could teach us about building simpler, more economical, longer lasting, easy to maintain houses that would be more affordable to a larger amount of people and would not have a long-lasting negative effect on the environment. It is time to consider how to use recycled materials for construction or decoration, and consider how recyclable those buildings would be, if ever demolished. The Green Building movement’s concept of buildings that could last 250 years is an important one too.

ELIEL SAARINEN’S FIRST CHRISTIAN CHURCH

AIA approved course for Architects & Interior Designers - 4 HSW CE/LU

One of the 20th Century first modernist church built in 1942 in the small town of Columbus, Indiana, at the time with about 10,000 inhabitants. This will start the incredible story of a city which saw over 59 famous architects designing churches, schools, government and commercial buildings. The church became famous for its large amount of natural light, its simplicity, its space and a campanile built next to it, which by misfortune needs to be restored very soon for fear of collapsing. We will study, the the concept behind the design of the church, the construction, its uses and what can be done to restore such a monument.

EERO SAARINEN’S MILLER HOUSE, COLUMBUS, IN

AIA approved course for Architects & Interior Designers - 4HSW CE/LU

Eero Saarinen worked with his father on the First Christian Church, where he met, Irwin Miller, the man behind the amazing architectural development of the city. Prior to the Miller House, he designed also the North Christian Church, which is probably one of the most astonishing modernist church of the 20th Century. The Miller house is an outstanding concept of a modernist house, designed for a couple and 5 children, who entertained important business people as well as famous politicians and artists. It is one of the first, if not the first having a very large Conversation Pits in one side of the living room. The house is simple in its design, but brings many interesting concepts about the flow and relationships between the rooms, as well as a discreet but efficient system of natural lighting.
