AIA Central New Jersey’s first continuing education event and 2019 officer installation was successful thanks to participants who braved the below freezing temperature, snow-covered county roadways and gusting winds. Ironbound Hard Cider founder and host, Charles Rosen as well as Design Strategist and Culinary Director, Ben Walmer, AIA, provided informational gems about the project and the relationship architectural design has with responsible agriculture. The group also learned more about the political and economic backdrop of the surrounding area, the detailing of the historic wood barn structure and its link to other important NJ state history.
Dinner included family style seating which provided a wonderful opportunity to get to know members and paired well with the warm and hospitable atmosphere Charles provided and the barn design exemplified. The meal was locally sourced with great attention to detail.
