7th Annual CRAN Symposium: Charleston, SC

We are delighted to welcome CRAN National to our great city this month! The local CRAN chapter hasĀ been working for over a year now getting ready for this 7th Annual Symposium and look forward to having some of the greatest names in architecture from around the nation in town.

The symposium theme is “The Architecture of Influence,” which will explore the importance of history and context in the design of new houses, and in particular how careful consideration of historical architectural styles – both traditional and Modernist – can help architects design houses that contribute to established physical and cultural settings. How a new house or building looks is fundamental to how a community responds to it, and this symposium is intended to encourage an ongoing conversation about it means to design good architectural neighbor in the 21st century. In my opinion there is no better place than Charleston for this discussion to take place!

I look forward to sharing with you the topics highlighted throughout the symposium as well as picture of the welcome oyster roast and other activities!
