Education: CRAN Symposium

Underway this week in Santa Rosa, California is the annual CRAN Symposium. The symposium gathers hundreds of residential architects together for a week long conference of networking events, educational sessions, and home tours. PHX Architecture’s Joanna McBride and Scott Carson are representing the firm and keeping us updated on the daily happenings.

The Symposium opened with a welcome reception hosted by the local AIA chapter, AIA Redwood Empire. Monday included five educational sessions and Monday evenings highlight was the WineMaker’s Dinner in Knight’s Valley Garden. The dinner featured a 30-minute wine and hors d’oeuvres reception followed by a perfectly-paired four course meal with wines from Dutton-Goldfield Winery.

Tuesday, Symposium guests were taken all around the Sonoma Valley on Home Tours. The tour featured four homes including a remodeled, modern main house plus a guest house, a traditional home with a private pond and custom wine cellar,  a modern home with lots of wood and interesting details, and a home made from an old barn frame reused for the house structure with an addition that is a concrete box.

The rest of the week will feature educational sessions and networking receptions before closing remarks on Thursday afternoon.
