Preservation Architecture: How to Protect and Preserve Our Magnificent Old Buildings


Chicagoland is a world-renowned center of architectural history and innovation, with an enormous number of unique historical buildings and residences. From the brownstones, churches and commercial buildings in downtown Chicago to the mansions and estates on the North Shore, we are fortunate to be surrounded by wonderful echoes of the past. It is important that we learn more about how we can protect and preserve these beautiful structures.

Program: Historic preservation architect Annabelle Radcliffe-Trenner, (originally from the UK) principal and founder of Historic Building Architects, will discuss historic preservation and new technologies that are used to preserve and protect our historic buildings.

Presenter: Annabelle Radcliffe-Trenner was trained as a preservation architect at Edinburgh University in Scotland and at ICCROM in Rome. Recent projects of hers include the Olson House in Cushing. Maine, which inspired Andrew Wyeth’s painting of Christina’s World, Castle Hill. The Castle Hill on the Crane Estate in Ipswich MA, designed by architect David Adler of Chicago and The Twombly-Vanderbilt Mansion (now Fairleigh Dickinson University) in Florham Park, New Jersey which is one of the 10 largest houses in the United States and was designed by McKim Mead and White.
