This month’s webinar will be focused more on the technical aspects of stained glass windows than the artistic aspects. Ron Bovard, founder of Bovard Studio Inc. in Fairfield, Iowa will cover the following learning objectives:
1. Review historic to modern styles of stained glass windows
2. Review architectural settings of stained glass windows, light sources and environment of installation
3. Review materials, types of glass, glass painting, etc.
4. Review design process and structure of a well-designed stained glass window
5. Review properly designed and engineered glazing and framing systems for the conservation of new stained glass windows
6. Review safety and environmental procedures for working with lead in stained glass windows.
About the presenter:
Ron Bovard started in 1971 as an independent artist and had his first art show at Carnegie Museum in 1972. He enjoyed a career as an independent artist and art director for 14 years before starting Bovard Studio Stained Glass in 1985. Since then, he has grown his company to a staff of over 70 employees, including artists, painters and designers from around the world as well as fabricators, restoration staff and installers. Their engineering staff has designed and tested their glazing systems at the National Testing Laboratories and they are now approved by the state of Florida for the maximum hurricane wind load and impact codes. They manufacture their US patented wood, aluminum and steel frames designed for the conservation of stained glass windows in their studio’s frame shops. They restore and create stained glass windows and glazing systems for about 150 churches, courthouses, hospitals, libraries, state capitols, and other public buildings per year.

The objective this webinar is to assist worship space architects and planners in designing acoustically appropriate and functional spaces for musicians. Accommodation of Traditional and Contemporary Choirs, Ensembles, Praise-Bands, Orchestras, Hand-Bells, as well as soloists and instrumentalists, pianos, digital and pipe organs, and sound system considerations will all be included. Related topics discussed will include music space allotment, location, proximities, layouts, as well as use of materials, acoustic treatments, technical infrastructure, and aesthetics.

Light is the single most powerful connection we have to the universe. Light not only brings life and warmth, but it also enables us to perceive the eccentric rolling of our planet. The profound use of daylight is possibly the most potent tool one has when designing a sacred space. Light is the key element of both the immaterial and material realm that helps one to capture a sense of the eternal in the built realm.
Through carefully looking at several seminal works of architecture, we will examine the critical role of daylight: how daylight is employed, the benefits and challenges of creating more light-sensitive architecture and why the use of light in each project is profound.
1. Define the aesthetic, environmental and psychological impacts of incorporating daylight into modern works of architecture.
2. Discuss and become familiar with powerful light-employing strategies from several seminal projects.
3. Analyze opportunities for incorporating daylight using powerful and memorable methods in new and adapted projects.
4. Confidently share with clients and users the positive and profound impact of incorporating daylight into architecture.
About the presenter:
Jack DeBartolo 3 FAIA is principal and design leader of debartolo architects, an award-winning, critical architectural practice based in Phoenix, AZ. DeBartolo holds degrees from The University of Arizona and MIT, where he received honors for his thesis focusing on the phenomenological qualities of light in the design of an urban sanctuary. In 1996, DeBartolo and father formed the studio of debartolo architects, where for over a decade they collaborated in making ‘significant’ architecture focused on the innovative use of common materials with simplicity and restraint. Now entering their twenty-first year of practice, working on several churches, private houses, adaptive reuse projects and several creative office spaces, the studio continues to gain national attention for the work.
