Hosted by the Center for Advanced Research on Traditional Architecture (CARTA), the Traditional Building Conference took place at St. Cajetan’s on the Auraria Campus on October 5th and 6th.
The conference’s keynote speaker, Charles Flynn, discussed the work he has been doing to establish, preserve and enhance the Yuma Crossing National Heritage Area. A project that is balancing many different interest groups, the preservation of Yuma Crossing is a great success story. Read more about it here and here.
Other conference sessions included a discussion of sympathetic additions to historic buildings, infill construction in historic settings, low-impact HVAC solutions, a master’s class on traditional doors, the sustainability of adding storm windows, 3D digital documentation and more.
Two of the APT-RMC board members, Jessica Reske and Natalie Lord, presented a session on the treatment of steel windows.
The conference had a great turn-out of architects, tradespeople, and other preservation practitioners. For more information about the Traditional Building Conference Series visit their site here.
