Do you live in an old, old house? Have you always wanted to live in an historic house? Mark Alan Hewitt is the expert you need to know. Together with Gordon Bock, Mark Alan Hewitt has written The Vintage House, a must-have primer for homeowners and professionals who want to achieve truly compatible, stylistically accurate additions and renovations. Their expert perspective on dealing with historic buildings includes new design ideas and techniques. Compact water heaters, sustainable building practices, geothermal heating, as well as blending new windows or dormers without destroying historic character; all these are covered in this important book. Mark Alan Hewitt has a master of architecture degree from the University of Pennsylvania and has taught architecture and historic preservation at Rice University, Columbia, and New Jersey Institute of Technology; he is a recipient of an NEH fellowship at the Winterthur Museum and received the Arthur Ross Award in 2009 for his writing on classical architecture. The lecture will be followed by a reception.
