Designed to engage and enlighten, Classical Conversations is a monthly series of thought-provoking conversations moderated by an inspired host. Open to Philadelphia ICAA members only, this monthly series offers an opportunity to dive deeper into various topics (publication, video, current event) while connecting with colleagues and friends.
This month, join local architect, Thomas Dougherty, for a moderated discussion about The Art of Making Places with Leon Krier, Maria Sanchez, and Pedro Godoy, a virtual lecture presented by National ICAA. Individuals interested in participating in this month’s Classical Conversation are encouraged to register for and watch the free, live lecture (May 19, 6pm) or a recording of the lecture, prior to their attendance. Register for The Art of Making Places here.
Thomas Dougherty studied architecture and urban design at the University of Notre Dame’s Graduate School of Architecture. He graduated in 2018 with a Masters of Architecture and in 2019 with a Masters in Architectural Design and Urbanism. Thomas grew up on a small farm in Ohio near Pittsburgh, PA. He studied history and philosophy at Franciscan University of Steubenville, and it was while studying abroad in Austria in 2010 that he became fascinated with the urban spaces of traditional European towns and cities. The Notre Dame Architecture School is steeped in the humanist tradition of architecture and urban design, studying the reflection of culture in the built environment, from the ancients to modern day.
