    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.

    Please join APT DC for a workshop on gilding given by John Canning & Company. The workshop will include a hands-on demonstration and an opportunity for participants to try gilding.

    John Canning & Company will present the best practices and techniques for gilding, one of their specialties. Atop the highest domes and inside iconic landmarks, churches, theatres, and residences, John Canning & Company's artisans have gilded them all – including the application and glazing of 180,000 square feet of gold and silver leaf in ten weeks at Radio City Music Hall. 

    The event will begin at 9:00 AM and will include a light breakfast and coffee. The Christman Company will be hosting us at their office in Sterling, Virginia. Should you need a ride from the nearest Metro station or would like to carpool, please email us.

    A special thanks to both John Canning & Company and the Christman Company for hosting this event.
