Manage episode 345226819 series 1980878
Following in the footsteps of the original White House designer and builder, James Hoban, in this episode of the White House 1600 Sessions we hear from the next generation of designers who have left their mark on the White House. Association president Stewart McLaurin speaks with Tham Kannalikham, White House Historical Association Board Member and former White House decorator, as well as Steven Spandle, architect of the White House tennis pavilion. The interviews took place at a gathering in Brooklyn, NY for the White House Historical Association’s Next-Gen Leaders who learned how the plaster ornaments that decorate the new tennis pavilion were made from the host of the evening, Emily Bedard, one of the Association’s Next-Gen Leaders and the Creative Director for Foster Reeve & Associates, the architectural and ornamental plaster design firm which worked with Kannahlikham and Spandle to bring the pavilion to life.
