Join us on Thursday, May 30th from 6:30-8:00 PM for the latest in our Preservation Pioneers series with Davis Buckley! We'll interview Mr. Buckley about his life and career, and we'll engage the audience during a moderated question and answer session. The evening will begin with a half hour of light refreshments and mingling, and the conversation will begin promptly at 7PM.

Davis Buckley began his design career working on Buckminster R. “Bucky” Fuller’s geodesic dome and Americana exhibits for the 1967 World Exposition, known as EXPO 67. After working on the site design of the dome, he continued his professional education at Yale University studying under Serge Chermayeff, and Charles W. Moore. Mr. Buckley came to Washington with an appointment to Congress to assess the facility needs of the United States House of Representatives in accordance with the Legislative Reform Amendment of 1974.

Mr. Buckley established Davis Buckley Architects and Planners in 1979. Since its founding, the firm’s projects have earned over 40 design awards including AIA Awards, a Presidential Design Achievement Award for Excellence in Design, the Tucker Architectural Award of Excellence, the International Design Award from the US Air Force, and twice the Henry Hering Memorial Medal.
