Ann Dilcher, AIA, LEED AP


In addition to Ann Dilcher’s work on a wide range of building design and community planning projects, her knowledge of technical and historic preservation and preservation technology has helped her become a respected leader within the preservation community. “Ours is such a romanticized profession,” she observes. “So many people tell me they always wanted to be an architect. Does this ever happen to CPAs?”

Inspired by such venerated structures as the Greek temples of Paestum, Italy and Cordoba’s 8th Century Mosque (now Cathedral), Ann also sees the beauty in such overlooked U.S. treasures as county courthouses built near the turn of the 20th century. “These jewels, in so many county seats across the country, represent the civic pride and importance of community gathering spaces that one rarely finds in new civic architecture.”

One of my greatest joys as an architect is seeing a building that was underutilized or even abandoned when we started brought back to life with people, activity and purpose.
