Dictionary of Building Preservation – by Ward Bucher

Dictionary of Building PreservationMenokin Glass Project team member Ward Bucher is also the editor of the Dictionary of Building Preservation – a reference book of more than 10,000 terms.

The book was the invention of necessity. As a preservation architect, Ward uses these terms regularly in his work. But burdened with a poor memory (high five on that one) he couldn’t always remember the term he was looking for.

So he put together this fabulous reference guide and brought us a signed and dedicated copy today for our library. My hope is to share them with you on a regular basis so you can begin learning the terms along with me.

Find the first term on the Building Preservation Terms post. New terms will be added to the top of the page.

Have fun!
