Edgartown Walking Tour - In Celebration of the 'Christmas in Edgartown' Weekend Festival
Join award winning architect Patrick Ahearn and the New England Chapter of the ICAA, Saturday, December 9th, for a walking tour in historic Edgartown, as Patrick discusses the history of Martha’s Vineyard architecture and how the town of Edgartown has evolved over the years. The tour begins at 2p.m. and will conclude with a festive reception at the Carnegie Library. Celebrated as one of America’s top classical architects, Patrick Ahearn — a Fellow of the American Institute of Architects — began his career with ambitious adaptive-reuse public projects and for the past twenty-five years has focused primarily on historically motivated, site-sensitive private residences in New England. Raised in Levittown, New York, and based in Boston for the past four decades, he received degrees in architecture and urban design from Syracuse University. Today, he oversees a firm of twelve designers working in studios in Boston’s Back Bay and in Edgartown, on Martha’s Vineyard. He has designed more than 500 signature private residences, including the HGTV Dream Home 2015, and has been featured in numerous magazines and Newspapers.
