Preservation Points

When the Alameda Sun was a new newspaper, the editors asked AAPS to write a series of articles on preservation topics. Although some of the information in them may be dated, they still have lots of great information about restoring buildings that is not. Below, the articles by AAPS member Randy Horton, are linked as PDFs for download.

Allan Temko Speech

When the Alameda City Hall was seismically retrofitted and renovated in 1997, adequate footings were provided to allow the restoration of the clock tower that was originally on the building. A non-profit organization, ARTT, was formed to raise funds for the tower restoration, and they invited the renowned former architecture critic for the San Francisco Chronicle, Allan Temko, to give a speech at a fundraising dinner in 1999. Below is a link to the transcription.
