Architectural terra cotta is one of the most prevalent ornamental features in urban environments, and New York City is filled with remarkable examples. The skyline here is rich in terra cotta figures and intricate decorative  detail. This program will present a thorough consideration of varied aspects of this material.

Topics to be covered will include an in-depth discussion of the use of terra cotta in historic and modern buildings; the manufacturing of terra cotta for restoration and for new construction and case studies of the restoration and maintenance of these historic buildings. The program will feature three speakers, each an expert in this field.

Speakers are:

Dan Allen- Principal, CTA Architects
Susan Tunick– President, Friends of Terra Cotta and author of Terra-Cotta Skyline
