The Cyclorama, Boston Center for the Arts

Special Program:

Saturday, October 25 l 2:00 p.m. 
Boston has one of the richest and largest collections of historic residential architecture in the country: from our Colonial heritage, to our vibrant and cherished Victorian neighborhoods, to Mid-Century modern homes in Lincoln inspired by Walter Gropius. What challenges do historic homeowners and prospective historic home buyers face when restoring a historic property? How can one remain true to the home’s original glory and still make it functional for contemporary living? Bring your questions, photos, and ideas for a lively exchange with a panel of experts renowned for their experience in historic restoration.

ABX- ArchitectureBoston Expo
October 28-30

Boston Convention & Exhibition Center | Hall C

ArchitectureBoston Expo (ABX) is one of the largest events for the design and construction industry in the country, and the largest regional conference and tradeshow. Drawing 92% of its attendance from New England, ABX’s regional reach is its greatest strength. Attendees hold on to their money (no airline fees, hotel costs or meal expenses) and spend their time building relationships and networks around physical proximity and the likelihood of follow-up work. The building industry varies dramatically from region-to-region due to issues of climate, geography, politics and economics. ABX and the Boston Society of Architects help build long-term relationships around these shared experiences and challenges.

The ABX call for workshop proposals is open until March 3. Both introductory and advanced topics are encouraged. Get more information here.

Find the Alliance booth at the Exhibit Hall to talk to staff, learn more about what we do, and pick up materials about the organization and preservation in Boston.

Arts and Crafts Architecture: History and Heritage in New England
November 12

Old South Meeting House, 310 Washington Street | 6:00-7:30 p.m.

Presented by Old South Meeting House and Co-Sponsored by the Boston Preservation Alliance & the Victorian Society in America / New England Chapter

Curious about architecture and historic preservation in early 20th-century New England? Architectural historian Maureen Meister will discuss how the Arts and Crafts movement was connected with a growing interest in historic preservation – first in England, where the movement culminated in William Morris’s founding of the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings, then here in Boston, where the restoration and remodeling of pre-Industrial historic buildings played a key role. From Charles Bulfinch’s Massachusetts State House, to the Old North Church and the Concord Art Center – learn how Boston’s Arts and Crafts architects preserved the region’s heritage with well-executed ornament and innovations – resulting in designs that are today New England landmarks.
