Members will appreciate the renaissance fueled by the adaptive reuse of historic buildings and three workshops, terra cotta, windows, and non-destructive evaluation, will provide great options to learn, engage and share insight.
Over the course of four days, preservationists, planners, crafts-people, architects, engineers, and educators will gather to discuss cutting-edge approaches to renewing and preserving our heritage places and share ideas and best practices through paper sessions and keynote presentations.
In addition, participants can attend field sessions, workshops, networking events, and the special symposium, “The Next Fifty”. And as APT celebrates 50 years, we have planned a special event celebrating our heritage and our future together, at the “Canada Day” celebration in Niagara On The Lake.
On Monday, September 24th, APT Delaware Valley Chapter and Keast & Hood will host a presentation by Ivan Strelbitsky, a Structural Engineer from Russia speaking on “Structural Engineering in Historic Preservation - Examples of Response to Natural and Man-made Disasters.” The talk will cover the structural reinforcing of historic buildings affected by a variety of disasters, neglect, or an improper approach to previous interventions. The structures discussed date from 8 c. (Caucasus) to 19 c. and include churches, fortresses, and mansions.
