Upcoming Event

May 2015 Technical Meeting

1 AIA Learning Unit

"Structural Brick and
Restoration Solutions"
"Early American Terra Cotta"

Join us on May 20th for dinner and presentations by Michelle K. Perez and Susan Tunick.

Michelle, Northeast Territory Sales Manager and Commercial Interior Designer, will speak on topics including cost saving strategies using Hollow Clay Masonry, energy codes and the benefits of keeping “in kind” materials in our walls, and the resiliency of reinforced clay masonry in hurricane, tornado, earthquake, and fire designed projects.

About the Speaker

Michelle K. Perez, Northeast Territory Sales Manager and Commercial Interior Designer, joined Interstate Brick in 2010, during which time she has established herself as a valuable building envelope consultant among the architectural community. She is solidly established as a professional resource for all masonry wall systems, in particular those designed with structural clay brick.

Early American Terra Cotta

Our second speaker, Susan Tunick, will speak about Early American Terra Cotta. This presentation will explore important aspects of the virtually unknown first phase (1849-1860) of American architectural terra cotta production. Pioneering efforts to successfully market American architectural terra cotta were carried out by a small number of companies from about 1849 until the Civil War. A surprising number of structures from this era have survived and will be discussed.

About the Speaker

Susan Tunick, is an authority on terra cotta, artist in the medium, and President of Friends of Terra Cotta. Among her publications are: Terra-Cotta Skyline (1997) which won that year’s New York Society Library Award: Best Book on NYC; PARIS and the Legacy of French Architectural Ceramics (1997); Terra Cotta...Don’t Take it for Granite (1995); and George & Edward Blum: Texture and Design in New York Apartment House Architecture (with A. S. Dolkart, 1993). She has consulted for such firms as Platt Byard Dovell White Architects LLP; Hazen & Sawyer; and Pei Cobb & Freed & Partners Associates.
