Preservation of Carlyle House: What if we could do it over?

May 21
6:00pm to 9:00pm

Four years after the passage of The National Historic Preservation Act, the Northern Virginia Regional Park Authority (NOVA Parks) began a daunting task: the restoration of the Carlyle House, an Aquia creek stone building in Alexandria, VA.  Fauber Garbee, Inc., Architects directed the extensive restoration and research of Carlyle’s 1753 home and the long forgotten stories associated with the house.

Join members of the original restoration team Richard Bierce, AIA, Sharon Park, FAIA, FAPT, LEED AP and Baird M. Smith, FAIA FAPT along with other preservation professionals to examine the specific conservation, repair and restoration steps undertaken almost 50 years ago.  Then delve into a dialogue exploring whether the same paths would be taken today and why or why not.

Join us for the opportunity to network with other professionals during a reception from 6 – 7 p.m.  The presentation begins at 7 p.m. followed by a panel discussion and a moderated question and answer session.

Space is limited and reservations are required.
