Vocabulary of Architecture Workshop

November 23, 2013 @ 10:00 am - 11:50 am

Do you find yourself describing the elements of buildings in terms of thing-a-ma-jigs and what-cha-ma-call-its? Join Eric Wheeler, member of the Architectural Heritage Center Education Committee, as he helps demystify the language of architecture as it relates to some of the common architectural styles found in the Portland area.

This updated program is ideal for anyone interested in architecture. After this session you’ll be able to impress your friends, family, co-workers, and contractors with your new-found knowledge of architectural terms such as gambrel, oculus, lintel, corbel, and quoin. From pilaster to pediment, there’s sure to be a little something for the architectural nerd in all of us!

Program participants are encouraged to bring photographs of their homes or any building details that you can’t seem to identify.

Tickets($10-18) can be purchased online.
