Architects Continuing Education: Terra Cotta New York

The Historic Districts Council is pleased to present the first in a series of continuing education panels which will focus on historic materials. These programs will illuminate the complex histories, manufacturing methods, restoration process and use as a contemporary material. The first program is Terra Cotta New York.

Architectural terra cotta is one of the most prevalent ornamental features in urban environments, and New York City is filled with remarkable examples. The skyline here is rich in terra cotta figures and intricate decorative detail. This program will present a thorough consideration of varied aspects of this material.

Topics to be covered will include an in-depth discussion of the use of terra cotta in historic and modern buildings; the manufacturing of terra cotta for restoration and for new construction and case studies of the restoration and maintenance of these historic buildings. The program will feature four speakers, each an expert in this field.

Speakers are:

Susan Tunick- President, Friends of Terra Cotta and author of Terra-Cotta Skyline.

John Krouse- President, Boston Valley Terra Cotta

Dan Allen- Principal, CTA Architects

Harry Kendall- Principal, BKSK Architects
