The Museum’s Architecture 101 lecture series, which provides professionals, students, and the general public alike with the opportunity to learn about historical architectural movements every summer, continues this year with a dip into a few types of beach architecture in celebration of the Museum’s summer installation.

Come to class in 2015 to learn about lighthouses, the Sea Ranch, and Newport Mansions.

Self-guided walking tours are available for some styles covered in the series. The tours offer examples of buildings that feature the architectural elements discussed in the lecture and allow students, professionals, and the general public to hit the pavement and discover architectural history, whether they have attended the program or not.
