For the first time ever, the AHC is offering a multi-part course in which you’ll be introduced to the great historical buildings, monuments, and aesthetic movements that are reflected in Portland's architectural heritage.


The History of Architectural Styles classes take place on three consecutive Saturdays. The registration price includes admission to all three (3) lectures.


The illustrated lectures follow the historical development of the world's great architectural monuments and aesthetic movements from the Egyptians to the present. The lectures are organized historically into three eras that summarize the development of modern architecture:


April 23rd - Architectural Styles 101) Classical Architecture: Greece and Rome

April 30th - Architectural Styles 102) Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque Architecture

May 7th - Architectural Styles 103) 19th and 20th Century Architecture: Industrialism and Modernism.


All three classes start at 10:00am and end at 11:30am.


This course is presented by Professor Thomas Hubka who has taught history courses at professional schools of architecture for over thirty years, including recent courses at Portland State University, the University of Oregon and Portland Community College. The program is intended for both the novice and returning professional and will emphasize a basic vocabulary of historical styles and architectural terms to describe the great works of world architecture. Each historical style will be linked to well-known Portland buildings in order to demonstrate how our regional buildings have been influenced by the architecture of a wider world.
