Do you find yourself describing the elements of buildings in terms of thing-a-ma-jigs and what-cha-ma-call-its?

Join us as John Doyle, member of the AHC Education Committee and walking tour docent, helps demystify the language of architecture as it relates to buildings commonly found around 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!
