Learn the Lingo: Identifying Architectural Styles and Terms

September 16 @ 9:30 am - 1:00 pm


Don’t know the difference between a mullion and a mutton? Can’t tell the difference between a parapet and a parasol? If you think a ziggurat is a delicious snack, then this course is for you!

Join David Cooke from DCA Design to learn how to identify key architectural styles, roof forms and develop your architectural vocabulary!

Learning outcomes:

After this session, you will be able to:

  • Identify key architectural styles and describe them;
  • Identify different roof forms;
  • Understand key architectural terms such as podium, tower and parapet.

Audience: All built environment professionals who require an understanding of architectural styles, forms and terms including planners, landscape architects, planning enforcement officers, urban designers, planning lawyers, solicitors and barristers.

Presenter: David Cooke, DCA Design


“I really appreciated the history and context David gave to the architectural styles and detailing. It’s great to be able to understand how and why certain elements are the way they are, as opposed to just being told ‘this is what it is’. The break down of the presentation into understanding building elements and then into understanding styles was also very beneficial. I really enjoyed this course, thank you!”

“David’s presentation was clear, easy to follow and a good balance of written information to pictures/visual. It was nice that he took he time to engage with each participant too”

“This was the best PD I have attended!”
