If you are lucky enough to be going to Mexico on your spring break you should attend Mexican Architecture to be offered Wednesdays, Feb 8, 15, & 22, 2017 from 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm, by the Iowa Architectural Foundation in Des Moines. Even if you are NOT taking a trip, this class will give you a little vicarious time away from Iowa in sunny Mexico! A three-session class, Mexican Architecture will be taught by Pedro Garcia, AIA, project manager in the Sports Studio at RDG Planning and Design in Des Moines. He has been influenced by some of Mexico’s best architects and designers.
This class promises to take us on an exciting journey through the architectural history of our neighbor to the south, one of the Americas’ oldest and richest cultures. We will break it down into three major periods: Pre-Hispanic Architecture, The New Spain (Colonial Period), The Modernists. For more information visit www.iowarchfoundation.org. The class is offered at the Iowa Center for Architecture, 400 Locust, Suite 100, Des Moines. Cost: $54 Register here. It is listed under “Special Interest.”
