The final installment in this four-part educational video series offers AIA CES Learning Units.

This ICAA documentary will be airing throughout July and August on ALL ARTS, the arts and culture channel for New York Public Media and PBS. See their schedule for listings.

The ICAA is pleased to partner with Classical Excursions to present Architecture, Art, & Music: Classical Vienna (October 3-10), which will offer exclusive visits to private residences, tours of private and public art collections, and lectures by eminent scholars and experts on Viennese decorative arts and architecture.

A history of the design, controversies, and ultimate realization of the iconic center
With the Beaux-Arts City Beautiful masterpiece City Hall towering at its center, San Francisco’s Civic Center rose from the ashes of the 1906 earthquake to become one of the most fully-formed and planned civic centers in the country.

Now the complete story of its development has been capably told by author James W. Haas, in a volume that does justice to the complex history of the site and the competing interests that have guided its development in many phases over many decades.
