Concord, MA 01742 United States

Free

We often forget that authentic architecture, as defined by the first-century Roman architect and engineer Vitruvius, should be functional, structurally sound, and have Venustas or beauty. This third element is often the most elusive, and many over the years have argued that any attempt to define beauty is purely subjective or in the often quoted “eye of the beholder.” Architect, author, landscape painter, and former Lecturer at the Harvard Graduate School of Design, Jeremiah Eck FAIA, will present his case…

+ Google Map
$375 – $425

Fri + Sat 10am - 4pm, Sun 12pm - 4pm Sept 30 - Oct 2 This workshop is about moving from landscape into abstraction. The idea of landscape to abstraction covers a very broad range. It is very difficult to move one’s thinking towards the abstract but through using the lines of land, deciphering shapes, and simplifying, we will change our language from the literal to the non- objective using nature as our teacher.
