The choices seem to be wonderful, if not overwhelming. However, if you have an hour to spare, consider watching one of the videos from the “Foundations of Classical Architecture” series.

This free set of online videos consists of four one-hour videos. It’s produced by the Institute of Classical Architecture & Art and promoted by its San Francisco chapter, which has temporarily suspended its regular in-person programs due to the current COVID-19 concerns.

“We have plans to roll out more online programs, but we were lucky that we had this one ready-to-go when so many people are at home right now,” says Brandon Mitchell, ICAA’s director of marketing.

The “Foundations of Classical Architecture” videos will give you an understanding of the principles of proportion and great design, so you can begin to recognize why some buildings “work” visually and others don’t.

This can be especially important if you’re planning to be involved in any building or remodeling in the future.
