Vocabulary of Architecture Walking Tour: Saturday, November 7, 2015.

Did you know root of the word architecture is the Greek arkhitekton (“master builder”)?

This makes sense because the ancient Greeks were very skilled at architecture — from columns to stadiums and temples. Over time, the vocabulary of terms, according to the Getty Trust, for describing fine art, architecture, decorative arts, archival materials, and materials and methods of construction has grown to over 125,000 terms. Join the Historic Preservation Commission and local architect Sara Loe to learn more about the Vocabulary of Architecture in Columbia’s Historic Downtown District!

Vocabulary of Architecture: Saturday, November 7, 2015. Meet at the City Hall Key (701 E. Broadway) at 10:00 AM.

All events are free, open to the public, and family-friendly. No registration is required. For more information, please call Planner Rusty Palmer at 573-874-7394 or email rwpalmer@gocolumbiamo.com.
