LearningQUEST Alabama Architecture
Alabama Architecture Through the Eyes of Harvie Jones – Huntsville’s Preeminent Historic Preservation Architect
Instructor: Ralph Allen
Six Alabama Architecture Programs created in the 1980s by Huntsville Architect Harvie Jones, FAIA. The programs were developed with the help of the Alabama Chapter of the American Institute of Architects to give a glimpse of Alabama Architecture and help people understand the rich heritage of architecture in the region.
The six programs that were developed were originally presented as slides with a taped audio. It has been over 25 years since the programs were last presented and assembling and digitizing them was an exhaustive process. This showing will be the first time the reassembled programs will be presented.
