Raise the Roof: Restoring Reynolda’s Historic Roof

West Bedroom Gallery

A signature feature of Reynolda’s architecture is her long, low roofline of green clay tiles. In 2020, Reynolda will restore the century old roof manufactured by the Ludowici Tile Company. Photographs and manuscripts pulled from the Reynolda Archives offer an inside look at the roof’s history, construction, and rehabilitation. Aerial videography provides a bird’s eye view of current roof conditions; while a model roof constructed in gallery allows visitors to experience up close the design and construction techniques of a clay tile roof. The exhibition will be on view throughout the rehabilitation project, providing updates on the roof’s progress.
