Join the Traditional Building Conference in New Haven, Connecticut on Tuesday and Wednesday July 19 and 20, 2016 to revel in the rich architectural legacy of the Connecticut coast, Yale University, and the original nine squares of New Haven.
Our theme is Materials and Methods. Educational Sessions are planned on traditional academic architecture, adaptive reuse, masonry, residential construction techniques, and tours of buildings on and around the Yale campus.
Our venue is the celebrated New Haven Lawn Club (1931), an elegant colonial revival style, brick building designed by New Haven architect Douglas W. Orr (1892-1966). The building features art deco and moderne accents that complement the traditional setting including a Lalique crystal chandelier in the foyer.
Bring your walking shoes. Attendees can explore the rich and varied architectural heritage of downtown New Haven. The Lawn Club is adjacent to Yale University so the conference will take full advantage of this walkable setting.
