Trinity Church Tour
Saturday, February 8th, 2014
10:00 am - 12:00 pm
As a follow-up to our paper sessions on Friday, we are offering a tour of Trinity Church Saturday morning. The two hour tour of Trinity Church, a National Historic Landmark designed by H. H. Richardson, will showcase the history, art and architecture of the building, including murals and stained glass windows by John La Farge. The tour guide will describe the planning and construction of the five year phased work which created 12,000 square feet of new space below the church, restored the interior and exterior of the tower and incorporated a new ground source heat pump system with 8,000 linear feet of geoexchange in the heart of Copley Square.
The tour will be lead by Jean Carroon, a Fellow in the American Institute of Architects, is a principle at Goody Clancy, a Boston based design and planning firm, where her innovative design solutions in a broad range of sectors - including educational, civic and cultural - have been recognized with four National Preservation Honor Awards. She led the partial renovation and expansion of H. H. Richardson's Trinity Church, which was completed in 2006 and lauded as "a symbol of all that historic preservation represents in the 21st century", while creating a multi-purpose undercroft named the "Best New Space in Boston".
Jean was the 2012 recipient of The Harley J. McKee Award. The award recognized her significant body of work as a preservation architect, and a service as a pioneer in applying sustainable-design technologies to historic buildings. A former chair of the AIA Historic Resources Committee, she is the author of Sustainable Preservation: Greening Existing Buildings (John Wiley & Sons, 2010).
