Pope-Leighey House got a bath for its 75th birthday! The exterior cypress of the Pope-Leighey House in Alexandria, Virginia was weathering and in need of conservation which was completed in Spring and Summer, 2015. Join us for the first in a new architecture series to hear Ashley Wilson, AIA, the National Trust for Historic Preservation Sites Architect, discuss the philosophy, process and lessons learned during the cleaning and conservation of our iconic Usonian dwelling, located on the grounds of Woodlawn Estate. Much of the information can be applied to your own exterior wood projects.
Fee includes an in-depth tour of the house following the lecture by long time docent and Woodlawn Council Member, Peter Christensen. Reservation required. Space very limited. Interested members of the public also welcome.
1 hour education units (HSW) will be provided for AIA members who attend, contingent on review and approval of the final program by the AIA.
