IPTW 2000, Harrisburg, Pennsylvania - "Convergence of Architecture and Craft"

In November 2000, the IPTW was held in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania in partnership with the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission. The Harrisburg event was attended by more than 500 people. The workshop theme – Convergence of Architecture and Craft – also became the focus of a special issue of the APT Bulletin, Vol. XXXIII, No. 1, containing articles by many of the presenters at IPTW. The purpose of the workshop and APT Bulletin was to open a dialog on creating a climate of inclusion among all members of the preservation team, including the trades. PTN began holding specialized workshops in conjunction with IPTW 2000. In partnership with the Timber Framers Guild, PTN held two workshops to reconstruct a traditional timber-frame Hay Barrack for the Landis Valley Museum in Lancaster, PA. The 3rd annual Askins Achievement Award was presented to Rudy R. Christian, founding member of the Timber Framers Guild, the Traditional Timber Frame Research and Advisory Group of the Guild, and noted lecturer and teacher of traditional timber framing techniques.
