A Place in the Sun

Happy Preservation Month 2024!

It’s time to find "Washington’s Place in the Sun" as it relates to architecture across our state! This year we are celebrating and educating you about the various ways that architects, builders and property owners have Harvested Light, Heat and Energy throughout the years.

Be sure to tune in each day of the week for the entire month of May on our social media as we highlight: Experimental Solar Designs; the Technical Aspects of Solar Heating; Bringing Light into Spaces in the PNW; Different Ways in Which We Control the Sun; and Discover various Solar Celebrations and Organizations. Get ready for a HOT Month!!
