Alan to Speak at Wintergarten-Fachverband Dinner in Hamburg, Germany

June 2010 Denton, Md. – Founder of Tanglewood Conservtories, Alan – known for designing elegant one-of-a-kind custom conservatories, greenhouses and botantical pavilions, has been invited to address the German Association of Wintergarden Manufacturers (Wintergarten Fachverband) at the association’s annual dinner in Hamburg Germany on June 19th. Tanglewood has been asked to share images from their exquisite conservatory portfolio and to discuss the techniques and materials used to construct the turn-of-the-century glass masterpieces they are best known for.

Chairman of the Wintergarten Fachverband association, Franz Wurm says he became smitten with Tanglewood’s quality and diverse range of work and set out to learn more about the company, the founders and the craftsmen of the Tanglewood atelier.

Otherwise known as “Wintergartens” in Germany, conservatory design flourishes in Germany and Austria with a more contemporary flair and special attention to state-of-the-art engineering.

Tanglewood will present and speak with members of the Wintergarten Association as tribute to these ingenious glass creations and the remarkable legacy that serves as inspiration to both American and European designers.
