Rosa Lowinger & Associates is delighted to announce the addition of Assistant Conservator Lauren Reynolds Hall to our firm. Lauren has an undergraduate degree in drawing and painting, and an MS in Historic Preservation with an Advanced Certificate in Architectural Conservation from the University of Pennsylvania’s Graduate Program in Historic Preservation.
Lauren served as a project manager and conservator for the University of Pennsylvania’s Architectural Conservation Laboratory at Mesa Verde National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. As a Samuel H. Kress Foundation Fellow in pursuit of her certificate at Penn, she developed, managed, and executed the pilot conservation treatment program for the Carrara marble capitals at the Philadelphia Merchants’ Exchange in Independence National Historical Park (see before and after images below). Immediately prior to joining RLA, Lauren worked for New York's prestigious Building Conservation Associates, Inc., where she performed construction monitoring for the restoration of the New York Hall of Science’s Great Hall reinforced concrete and glass façade, worked as a conservator to stabilize the painted dining room ceiling at Vanderbilt Mansion National Historic Site in Hyde Park, NY, and developed construction documents for the Newark Museum’s Ballantine Carriage House and Polhemus House in Newark, NJ
Lauren's addition to our firm will allow us to offer the highest level architectural conservation services to our nationwide clients.
