Architectural Influences Tour September 2017

The weather in Wisconsin was perfect for our annual architectural influences tour! The leaves are beginning to change color as we fall into autumn (pun intended) reminding us summer is already behind us.

The tour included stops at Taliesin in Spring Green, WI. The famed architect Frank Lloyd Wright's summer home, private studio and campus of The Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture founded in 1932, 2 Cardinal glass plants including the Coating and Insulating plants, as well as a tour of the Kolbe & Kolbe Millwork plant in Wausau, WI.

8 AIA Learning Units were earned over the course of 2 days and some good food and libations were of course enjoyed by all! Some other stops included a visit to the Kolbe Lodge for dinner and tour of the original family farm as well as an impromptu stop into downtown Wausau and the Yawkey House Museum where Kolbe had a hand in the restoration including the use of bent glass, curved Double Hung windows!

Below is a snapshot into the trip from my perspective. I hope you enjoy and I would love your feedback and any pictures you may have and would like to share! Send to me at justin@northamericanwindow.com<mailto:justin@northamericanwindow.com>. A very special thanks to our 2017
