Patti Kuhn Babin is an architectural historian and cultural resource specialist with expertise in the research of buildings and landscapes, documentation and reports, preparation of National Register nominations, and public presentations. Throughout her career, Patti has combined a love of history with a deep appreciation for architecture and community heritage reflecting a variety of design eras.
Patti’s experience has included numerous projects for the National Park Service, the Department of Defense, and other government agencies as well as historic property surveys for private-sector clients. She works closely with clients and design teams to inform the decision-making process about cultural resources and help reveal opportunities for the history of a property to inspire new uses and design concepts.
“I enjoy researching and piecing together the history of a building or resource, weaving in the broader cultural history that may have influenced its development, discovering how it evolved, and understanding its historic significance.”
