Notre Dame architecture professor Thomas Gordon Smith will teach a 4-hour class at Doheny Library on Sat., July 18. Covering the theory and practice of classical architecture--while providing an overview of Tuscan, Doric, Ionic, and Corinthian building designs--the class is presented by the Southern California chapter of the Institute of Classical Architecture & Classical America.
The libraries will present a recent series of work titled "From Zero to Infinity" by the pioneering digital artists Victor Raphael and Clayton Spada with a display of scientific works from the USC Libraries' special collections that inspired pieces in the series.
In honor of electrical engineering pioneer and cult figure Nikola Tesla, the libraries present a selection of resources to help you learn more about his life.
