Matt Seymour of Building Blocks, spoke about his work in masonry restoration to a group of historic preservation students at his alma mater, the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC), on Friday, February 17, 2017. Matt shared his knowledge of the GFRC and terra cotta restoration process and provided a presentation about the ongoing restoration at 125 S Clark in Chicago. Students then had the opportunity to view the project from Federal Plaza and ask Matt about his experiences after graduation.
