The Traditional Building Conference Series delivers focused, relevant education for architects, contractors, craftspeople, designers, building owners and facilities managers in a time-efficient format. 

Our first Traditional Building Conference of the 2023 Series takes place May 10-11, 2023, at the Historic Deer Path Inn in Lake Forest, Illinois.

Lake Forest overlooks Lake Michigan thirty miles north of Chicago. Its historic districts feature Gilded Age houses designed by Howard Van Doren Shaw, David Adler, Charles Platt, James Gamble Rogers and more.

Shaw’s work from Market Square to Ragdale will be one of our several architectural tours. Architect William C. Jones, Holabird and Root, designed our conference venue, the Deer Path Inn, in 1929.

Lake Forest College, Crabtree Farms and the Armor Estate are all nearby. Lake Forest is a gorgeous showcase for early 20th Century architecture, interiors and landscape design.

Session Topics and Tours Will Include:

  • Adaptive Reuse
