Robert Behre has penned a piece in today's Post and Courier profiling architect Dennis Dowd, director of Charleston's Urban Design and Preservation Division.

Dowd, who got his architect degree from Syracuse University, recently gave up his private practice in Essex, Connecticut and moved to the Palmetto State for the position. According to The Post and Courier, at 58, he already has years of preservation work under his belt from such projects as the renovations of the Forsyth Institute in Boston and St. John's Episcopal Church in Connecticut.

To learn more about Dowd, read the post, or meet the man yourself during a welcoming reception for Dowd and his wife Karan from 5:30 to 7 p.m. on September 30th at the Charleston Civic Design Center, located at 85 Calhoun Street.
