The Custom Residential Architects Network (CRAN), a Knowledge Community of The American Institute of Architects, will hold its 5th annual symposium on Sept 7-9, 2012 at the Hyatt Regency Hotel on the waterfront in downtown Newport, Rhode Island. Entitled “Elevating the Art of Residential Design & Practice,” the three-day symposium, open to all AIA and non-AIA members, will bring together custom residential architects from across the country to learn, share and discuss relevant topics in the field of residential architecture.

In addition to speakers Mark Hutker AIA, Steven Winter FAIA, Rob Heselbarth, Michael Imber FAIA, and Gary Brewer AIA (a partner at Robert Stern’s office), Joeb Moore AIA and Russell Versaci will be sharing their thoughts on the new paradigm of Contextual Sustainability.

A Friday House Tour will start with an introduction by John Tdchirch (Director of Museum Affairs of the Newport Preservation Society). Tour participants will then visit The Breakers, Marble House, The Isaac Bell House , Bellevue House (the private home and gardens of Mr. Ronald Lee Flemming).

Lastly, a highlight of the weekend will drinks and lively cocktail chatter at the attendees only party to be held at the International Tennis Hall of Fame & Museum. This shingle style building, originally the Newport Casino, was designed by McKim Mead, & White and is in mint condition. So we’ll get to party like it’s 1880. Surely an (architectural) experience to remember!
