Creating Places to Call Home: How Tradition, Style, and Memory Can Inspire Ways of Living

Thursday, February 15, 6pm

Award-winning architect and author of the new book A Place to Call HomeGil Schafer believes the most successful houses are the ones that celebrate living—houses with timeless charm that are imbued with memory and a distinct sense of place. It’s this dialogue between past and present that enables him to interpret traditional principles for a multiplicity of architectural styles within contemporary ways of living. Join Schafer as he opens the doors to his world of comfortable classicism, sharing some of the firm’s most recent, and exciting, projects from around the country and walking through the inner workings of his distinctive approach—from concrete techniques to the more emotional and intuitive aspects of his process—showing how he brings his projects to life and fills them with soul.

This lecture is co-sponsored by the Institute of Classical Architecture & Art. Free to ICAA members.

Copies of A Place to Call Home will be available for purchase after the lecture.
