    "After Wright - Rudolf Schindler, Richard Neutra, and Antoninand NoemiRaymond: Pathfinders of Regionalism and Sustainability" is the title of a daylong symposium held last September at The Raymond Farm Center for Living Arts & Design in New Hope, Pennsylvania.  The symposium was sponsored by CRAN and organized by the Center along with the AIA New York Cultural Facilities Committee with assistance by the Center for Architecture + Design of Philadelphia.

    For those that missed this event, John DeFazio, AIA , the director for the Center, gives an engaging synopsis of the lectures and events in the first issue of 2018 of Residential Design Magazine.  CRAN hopes to sponsor more events of this type in the coming years.  To read John's article in Residential Design Magazine go to
