Next Sunday, architect and architectural historian Andrew Raimist will be offering the next lecture in Landmarks Association of St. Louis‘ Modern Masters lecture series. Anyone who has attended one of Andy’s insightful talks on Harris Armstrong will know to expect something equally enlightening and joyful. By the way: Recently, P.R.O. was fortunate to collaborate with Andy on the National Register of Historic Places nomination for Armstrong’s Stonebrook (1959) in Jefferson County. Details to come. – Michael R. Allen
