This presentation will explore the migration of early and pre-industrial timber framing techniques from Europe to the Colonies. Using photos and drawings we will examine European architectural forms and their evolution in the new world. Bucks County represents a unique collision of cultural ideals and subsequent blending of building technologies that has influenced the development of the American landscape as early settlers moved west.
To better understand what makes the architectural landscape of Bucks and other south-eastern counties so distinctive, we will look not just to Europe, but to the colonial settlements to the north and south. In spite of a seemingly close proximity, we will see how the forms of New England, New York and New Jersey bear little resemblance to those with which we are so familiar here.
We will look at nuances of form, function, engineering and execution. Questions are welcome and participation is encouraged!
