Welcome To the Jungle:
Ancient Maya Plazas, Palaces & Pyramids
with IMS President Eric T. Slazy, AIA, NCARB, LEED BD+C
Located in the area of Mexico’s Yucatan peninsula, Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador, the Maya civilization flourished for nearly 3000 years. The artistic creativity, ingenuity and determination of these early people combined to produce some of the world’s most beautiful ancient architecture.
Our exploration of Maya architecture will uncover its origins around 1500 BC through its collapse at about 1200 AD and how different geographical locations & culture may have influenced the development of its great cities & regional architectural styles.
The Institute of Maya Studies is now a community partner with Miami Dade College – Kendall Campus, Miami, FL. This program will take place in K-413 (in Building K-4, Room 13) at 6 pm. Check out the campus map for the location of Building K-4 on mdc.com or, call the Maya Hotline (305-279-8110) for directions.
