Jan Gleysteen Architects recently attended "McKim, Mead & White: After the Shingle Style" - an architectural symposium in Newport, Rhode Island. The day long event began with a series of lectures focusing on the evolution of the works of Charles McKim, William Mead and Stanford White between 1880 and 1920. Speakers included Richard Guy Wilson, Laurie Ossman, and Richard Sammons followed by tours of the Commodore Edgar House (1886), Edgehill (1889), Beacon Rock (1888), and Rosecliff (1901).
Hosted and organized by the International Tennis Hall of Fame on the grounds of the historic Newport Casino, the symposium has been going strong for seven years. To learn more about the organization please visit their website or visit their newly renovated Hall of Fame.
