No tricks, just a treat. Join us for our quarterly lecture series, Preservation Pioneers, as we present Baird Smith, FAIA, FAPT. Mr. Smith retired in 2015 from the DC office of Quinn Evans Architects where he was a Principal and Director of Preservation. His broad experience includes expertise in many technical aspects of preservation such as brick and stone deterioration and restoration as well as energy conservation in historic buildings. In his retirement, Baird is pursuing his research interest in mid-Atlantic historic church design and construction. 

Mr. Smith was inducted as a Fellow of the Association for Preservation Technology in 2001 and as a Fellow of the American Institute of Architects in 2008. He holds degrees in architecture and American Studies and a certificate in Conservation Studies. He has worked on numerous National Historic Landmark buildings as well as a plethora of structures listed in the National Register. Regional projects include the exterior restoration of Healy Hall (Georgetown University) and the interior repairs to the Octagon House. His presentation will focus on how preservation changed over the course of his career and what he thinks the future will hold for the field. Please join us for what is sure to be an enlightening evening.

If you know a late-career preservation professional who may be willing to speak as part of our Preservation Pioneers lecture series, please email and put "Preservation Pioneers" in the subject line.
