Staying Sharpe: DesignWeek Event 9/19

How do you move a historic house? More importantly, where do you put it down? 

Join KITE for a special lunchtime Design Week event on September 19th, Staying Sharpe to answer these questions and more!

Get a behind-the-scenes look at the challenges that KITE Architects faced in moving the four-story historic Sharpe House on Brown University’s campus.

Working alongside a team of experts including Odeh Engineers and Shawmut Design and Construction, the KITE team made dramatic moves on the interior and exterior of the building with a two-story bridge, major additions, and new internal core. By connecting to Peter Green House it will establish a unified structure for the History Department. The result is a fresh, new space that is an architectural reinterpretation inspired by historic elements. Join architects Christine West, Albert Garcia and Phil Derby as they discuss what it takes to move a building as well as the mechanical and metaphorical dynamics involved in designing for history and the future!
