Evergreene Architectural Arts
New York City : June 25, 2009
Decorative Painting and Finishes
This workshop in the Evergreene New York City studios focused on the question of how – given the myriad factors of accurately and successfully restoring a historic landmark – it is possible to maintain an exacting level of quality for every facet of the restoration. The day long session sddressed issues such as logistics and safety, preserving and restoring extant materials and finishes, the difficulties of on-site conservation, and completing a restoration while a space is still in use. The participants also toured the current Evergreene project restoring St. Francis Xavier Roman Catholic Church. AIA-CES credits available.

Weaving Light with Historic Architecture
Exploring the creative dynamic among client, lighting designer, craftspeople and architect, the workshop included an overview of recent Rambusch preservation projects and focused on the recent project at the Count Basie Theatre in Red Bank, where a lack of any archival or physical evidence of original lighting fixtures gave the designers and craftspeople an exciting opportunity to create new and appropriate lighting for the historic theatre.
