DTC Marches On as I March Off into the Wilderness
May 25th, 2010
Time is counting down until my physical departure from Danish Teak Classics. Don't worry, DTC is healthy and well, and will be functioning with just one less employee, moi. This summer, I will be returning to the wilderness of the Adirondack mountains to work on the continuing restoration of a National Historic Landmark, Camp Santanoni. The camp was built in 1892 as a healthful retreat from the grit and noise of the industrialized city. Years of neglect and the harsh Adirondack winters have left the estate in dire need of stabilization and restoration.
This fall, I will be returning to school to complete a Masters of Science in Architectural Conservation. I have decided on the Edinburgh College of Art for the program's focus on midcentury modern architecture. Throughout the year, happily, I will continue to blog for Danish Teak Classics, so look for upcoming posts related not only to the events and projects at Danish Teak Classics, but also some relating to my travels, work and studies of midcentury design and conservation. Though I am very excited for my future endeavors, I am sad to go, as I am not only leaving a great job at DTC, but friends who just happen to be coworkers as well.
