What does it mean to build new within an existing urban neighborhood that has both historic significance and a distance identity? Join The Branch and Historic Richmond Foundation for the opening of Drawing on History: Infill Design Competition to learn more!
This engaging exhibition brings together 14 different design approaches, each addressing the challenges of creating a new building on a vacant lot within a historic district. Each design was reviewed by a panel of judges from the Richmond design, architecture, and housing community. With consideration given to issues like historic context, sustainability, affordability, and the neighborhood’s own unique sense of place, this exhibition is the beginning of a dialogue about the modern design process and its relevance to the fabric of historic neighborhoods.
At 5:45 p.m. there will be brief comments by Helene Combs Dreiling, FAIA, and Dr. Craig Reynolds of The Branch, and Cyane Crump of Historic Richmond Foundation
Enjoy light refreshments. There is no charge to attend, but spaces are limited. RSVP online.
