The popular course, attended by architects, contractors, homeowners and anyone who appreciates fine architecture, delves into the continuing conflict between traditional and modern schools of design. Along with other prominent architectural practitioners, VanderHorn will look at both design philosophies, and discuss the future direction of the American home.

"I'm honored to be part of this exciting summer course, and to be included alongside some of the most prominent architects and practitioners in the industry," said VanderHorn. "During this course, we're going to look at homes in the context of the rich architectural history of the United States. Modernism need not conflict with traditional styles, and during this event, we will not only show examples of how the two schools of architecture can co-exist, but how we can create a new direction for the American home."
