In an effort to educate and inspire others on a dying breed of building, a handful of local architects have formed a Charleston chapter of the Institute of Classical Architecture & Art.

Spearheaded by Christopher Liberatos and Bill Richardson, the group's goal is to spark interest and provide education to others about the classical tradition which is prominently displayed through many of Charleston's most recognizable buildings.

The chapter also hopes to add tours, classes, and lectures later this year.

The Post and Courier repots that the Charleston chapter will hold its spring meeting on April 14th at 89 1/2 Wentworth Street at 6 p.m. with a discussion about form-based code. The meeting is free to attend and open to the public.

The Post and Courier's Robert Behre has done a nice profile on the group; read it here.
