by Diana Budds On Saturday, June 23, join our conversation at Dwell on Design about what goes into refreshing icons of mid-century design. Architects Frank Escher and Ravi GuneWardena of Los Angeles firm Escher GuneWardena will be on stage to divulge the sometimes grueling conservation undertakings involved with historic homes: identifying historical relevance, sourcing materials, and restoring damaged areas while maintaining fidelity to the original. Case studies include John Lautner's Chemosphere and the Eames House. We're really thrilled to have them present their work (Escher GuneWardena designed the Pearson Trent residence, one of my personal favorite Dwell features and spearheaded the A. Quincy Jones Restoration on the sold-out West Side Home Tour) and hope to see you at the Design Innovation Stage at 1:00 p.m..
