March 2016 Meeting Notes

Jim Dunlap (AIA) provided Guild members a wonderful presentation covering the 10 plus year-period of architecture know as Prairie Style.  He brought alone his entire library of books, reprints of original hand-drawn designs of Frank Lloyd Wright and 100  photos of the masters of this period.  Jim presentation was inspiring and his passion for this style of architecture is infectious!

Thank You!

PROGRAM: President Roy introduced Jim Dunlap (one of our own) who looks at wood and other building materials from the credentials of an ARCHITECT. Tonight he will give us his view of “PRAIRE STYLE”. We see a lot of this building style in the Kansas City area and its birthplace in Illinois and Wisconsin. These structures are always unique but held true to a design that was FRANK LLYOD WRIGHT and others of his era. An hour was not time to tell the whole story but I’am sure we will get the REST OF THE STORY. Look for Jim to be a participant in the future. This was a story from the heart-no notes!!We always appreciate a member taking of their time to bring us a program. Don’t forget to help Vice President Greg Hull in locating programs that will allow our calendar to stay full.

WOODWORKERS SHOW: April 8,9,10-Check the sign-up sheet (call John Freeland).

NEXT MEETING –APRIL 12, 2016 at 7:00p.m.

Respectfully submitted,

Bill Akers  .
