Jul-09-20 06:00 PM Gilded Age Connections: Newport, Philadelphia, & Horace Trumbauer 6pm: cocktail reception (cash bar), 6:30pm: program starts Trudy Coxe, Chief Executive Officer of The Preservation Society of Newport County, will join us to speak on the familial and architectural ties, formed in the Gilded Age, that connect the cities of Newport and Philadelphia to the present day. Trudy will delve into the human stories behind the architects and owners of our most beautiful historic homes, and the cultural significance of the structures they created. Special attention will be paid to Philadelphia architect (and Union League member) Horace Trumbauer, whose houses attest to the attraction of Newport to some of Philadelphia’s wealthiest families. Trudy will also discuss the Preservation Society of Newport County, its origins, and its recent strides in both the preservation of its architectural treasures and ongoing efforts to interpret their linked histories with diverse public audiences. She will share her analysis of the future of historic preservation, and the strategic evolution necessary to ensure that our stories, and the buildings that house them, will be properly safeguarded for generations to come.Note: The Union League’s dress code is business casual—for men: jacket, collared shirt, and slacks, for women, something comparable.

Aug-20-20 06:00 PM The Row House as Classical Architecture: From Amsterdam to Philadelphia & Beyond 6pm: cocktail reception (cash bar), 6:30pm: program starts The first architects to design small and mid-sized classical houses were the Dutch in the Golden Age of the 1600s, the contemporaries of Rembrandt and Vermeer. In bringing classical architecture to the houses of middle-class people, they invented what we call the row house -- and they built the pleasantest cities in the world. Philadelphians are the heirs of the Dutch classical revolution, as filtered through often brilliant adaptations in England, Scotland, and Ireland. Only London has more row houses than Philadelphia, and no city has used the beauty of its row house neighborhoods more successfully than Philadelphia to lure new residents and new investment. Charles Duff’s new book The North Atlantic Cities, on which this program is based, describes and celebrates the growth of the world’s row house cities. Charles Duff is a planner, teacher, developer, and historian. Since 1987, as President of Jubilee Baltimore, he has led the revival of several dozen Baltimore neighborhoods and built or rebuilt more than 300 buildings. Known as an expert in historic architecture and urban history, he has also pioneered in the development of residential and commercial buildings for artists and arts organizations. A graduate of Amherst College and Harvard University, he studied at St. Andrews University in Scotland and has walked every city and neighborhood to which he refers. He is a past President of the Baltimore Architecture Foundation and has served on the boards of many community and professional organizations. He lectures widely and has taught at Johns Hopkins and Morgan State Universities.

Oct-17-20 10:30 AM Framing Rittenhouse: a walking tour of historic windows & doors meets at The Union League of Philadelphia, includes coffee and light refreshments2 AIA LUs The neighborhoods surrounding Rittenhouse Square provide some of the most intriguing and diverse forms of domestic and institutional architecture in Philadelphia’s Center City. The city’s booming economy after the Civil War fostered expanding upper and upper-middle classes who wanted to live around the historic square in houses designed by some of the city’s leading architects of the day, like Frank Furness, Theophilus Parsons Chandler, Charles Barton Keen, Wilson Eyre, and many others. This tour of the neighborhood’s late 19th and early 20th century architectural legacy, with a focus on notable historic windows and doors, will provide a visual and historical introduction to the still vibrant urban neighborhood. It meets at 10:30am for coffee and light refreshments, followed by three-hour walking tour. Jim Mundy, Historian of The Legacy Foundation of the Union League of Philadelphia will be your guide. He is an alumnus of The Attingham Summer School for the Study of British Houses and Collections and the Past President of The Woodlands Cemetery Company and the Woodlands Trust for Historic Preservation. Jim has also given architectural tours for the Preservation Alliance. Sponsored by North American Window & Door. ICAA Members - $30.00 General Admission - $40.00 Students - $25.00
