Marcel Quimby, FAIA, principal of Quimby Preservation Studio, will be the featured speaker at the Park Cities Historic and Preservation Society’s Education Meeting on Wednesday, November 18, 2020 at 6:00 p.m. CST. It will be a live streaming virtual event.
Quimby is a preservation architect, specializing in the areas of preservation architecture and planning. She is committed to the restoration and adaptive use of historic buildings, structures and communities and has led the restoration of both large and small projects, ranging in scale from historic log cabins to the Hall of State in Fair Park, a National Historic Landmark and Texas State Antiquities Landmark. Many of her projects have been recognized with local and state preservation awards.
Her work has benefitted from her recognition that each historic building is unique, and its history and construction must be fully understood to determine its condition and preservation needs. Her investigative skills and talents in determining appropriate treatment allows the building’s unique character and feature to be given new life, often including accommodating new systems and appropriate modifications.
