Indiana Landmarks Logs to Lustrons tour:

Do you favor rustic landmarks, like early log structures? Or are you a fan of Mid-Century Modern-style houses? Either way, we’ve got you covered on our May 4 Logs to Lustrons tour. Indiana Landmarks, in partnership with the Indiana Dunes National Park, team up to present 13 sites spanning a century of architecture, including restored residences not normally open to the public and vacant landmarks in need of a new use. Eight interiors will be open for touring. If you’d like an even deeper experience — and decide where you want to spend the most time on the tour — come on Friday, May 3 for an evening lecture on the architecture and history of the National Park.

APT Central Plains Symposium:

Please consider joining APT Central Plains Chapter for our upcoming Symposium “Complex Preservation: Lessons from the Nebraska State Capitol.” The symposium takes place at the Ferguson House in Lincoln, NE, just steps away from the Capitol building.  The event will span two days: running Friday, April 12 from 10:00 am-5:00 pm (reception to follow) and Saturday, April 13 from 8:00 am- 12:30 pm. The symposium will feature lectures on materials, methods and means of preserving the monumental and occupied Nebraska State Capitol on Friday and tours of the State Capitol on Saturday. At the Keynote on Friday afternoon, Kent Diebolt of Vertical Access will discuss the history and use of Guastivino tile, a major component of the Nebraska State Capitol.  Other featured presentations include:


  • Bob Ripley, Office of the Capitol Commission, “Preserving, using, and maintaining the Nebraska State Capitol”
  • Dan M. Worth, FAIA, FAPT and Zach Soflin, BVH Architecture, “Letting the Building Speak; Innovations for Planning, Programming and Documentation for Preservation and Rehabilitation”
  • Steve T. Alvine, P.E. and Paul A. Bauman, P.E., Alvine Engineering, “Replacing a 50+ Year Old System in an Ornate, Elaborate and High-rise State Capitol: An Engineers' View”
  • Julie Cawby, BVH Architecture, will be speaking about the HVAC project (title tbd)


Additionally, we will be hosting a round table discussion with all of the speakers and finish Friday with a reception at the Hickory Room at Lazlo’s. Saturday will begin at the Symposium location, the Ferguson house, and groups will take hardhat tours of the Capitol alternating between the HVAC project and Guastavino tile & historic finishes. We are happy to extend our membership registration rate to APT Western Great Lake Chapter members, and hope you can join us!  Full details are available: http://www.aptcp.org/pages/symposium
