"Heceta Head: A Different Kind of Architectural Project"
Presented by Sue Licht

For this Chapter Meeting, Historical Architect Sue Licht, Preservation Architect for Oregon Parks and Recreation, will be speaking about the recent architectural restoration work at Heceta Head Lighthouse on the Oregon Coast.

The Heceta Head Lighthouse, managed by Oregon Parks and Recreation Department, completed an extensive restoration project in 2013. This project used a number of innovative strategies throughout all phases of design development and construction; from site investigation to specification writing, mock ups and bidding methods to ensure that trained contractors and craftspeople were hired to complete the work. This lecture will talk specifically about the role of an architect in historic preservation projects and how this role is different from the role of an architect working with new construction.

Susan Licht is a private practicing architect that works exclusively on historic structures. She has been practicing architecture for more than 30 years in the midwest and now, the pacific northwest. Her degree in architecture is from the University of Oregon.

Drinks and food available for purchase at the venue, 2 Towns Ciderhouse.
