Historic Preservation Workshops planned for residents and architects


(July 22, 2013) – Oklahomans interested in getting practical advice on how to build, renovate or add on to a business or home in a historical area are invited to attend one of two free historic preservation workshops offered through the cities of Oklahoma City and Norman.

Featured speakers Lynn Taylor and Ron Frantz will make presentations during both events. Lynn Taylor, owner of Taylor Made Plans in Nashville, TN, is an infill home designer who specializes in preserving the historic integrity of neighborhoods while offering modern amenities.  Ron Frantz, AIA, is the AIA Director of Great Plains Studio of the Institute for Quality Communities (IQC) at the University of Oklahoma.  Frantz brings experience in commercial revitalization from his many years as architect for the Oklahoma Main Street Center.

The workshops are ideal for residents or architects who are considering adding on to a historic or older home or business, or those interested in constructing a new building in an older neighborhood.
