Dinner with the Experts: Sundays at 6:30pm

Moderated by Dr. Nicole Blackwood, President of Friends of the Owens-Thomas House.

FOT Lecture Series IV: March 21, 28 and April 11

Award-winning architect, Peter Pennoyer, will discuss the challenges of architectural preservation.  Some challenges can be met with technical expertise alone, while others require judgement and imagination – even artistic license.  Using specific case studies, Pennoyer will discuss how he confronts these various problems with examples drawn from buildings from a range of historic periods.  What do you do, for example, when a nineteenth-century house has some original moldings, while others are inferior catalogue-shopped parts from the 1970s?  Pennoyer will explain his rationale and process for preservation and how his firm creates historically accurate restorations.  He will also discuss how to approach buildings that were left incomplete or unfinished.  Walking us through structure, historical sources, and context – he maintains that it can be appropriate to complete a historical structure as it might have been.
