5ICCH Program & Abstracts Cover

All the way to the City by the Lake! Treanor Architects’ Julia Manglitz, project manager, and Vance Kelley, principal, recently travelled to Chicago, Illinois to present a paper they co-authored at the 5th International Congress on Construction History.

The International Congress on Construction History takes place every three years with the 5th International Congress on Construction History (5ICCH) being the first held outside of Europe. The first four took place in Madrid, Spain (2003), Cambridge, England (2006), Cottbus, Germany (2009), and Paris, France (2012). At the 5ICCH, 222 sessions were presented by academics and industry professionals from 26 different countries.

In their paper, “Cleverly Concealed: The Truth Behind Victorian Era Butter Joint Running Bond,” Julia and Vance examined the Victorian-era bricklaying method in the United States, specifically the Midwest. The intent of the butter joint running bond method was to showcase façade ornamentation by minimizing the visual effect of mortar joints and using concealed headers to tie the outer wythe of brick to the load bearing walls. Manglitz and Kelley also identified common condition issues, causes and repairs associated with the method that was used on high-style buildings.

“Cleverly Concealed” was published in Volume 2 of the  set of Proceedings of the 5th International Congress on Construction History and is available for purchase through 5ICCH.
