November Lecture Series - Darron Collins: "Renovating Turrets"

November 11 at 7:00 P.M.

The Turrets

This final talk of our 2014 Lecture Series will focus on the major renovation of The Turrets, a summer “cottage” built in 1895 and used by College of the Atlantic as the centerpiece of the campus. The building was designed by Bruce Price, the architect of the Chateau Frontenac in Quebec City. Collins will discuss the building project which preserved the outer envelope of the building, reconstructed two ocean side  turrets and replaced windows and doors using energy saving and historically accurate materials.

Darron Collins is the first President of College of the Atlantic who attended the college as an undergraduate.  Collins came to COA from the World Wildlife Fund after earning a Ph.D. from Tulane University. 

This talk is free to members and $5 for non-members.
