Audience: AIA AICP AR H HPC NP M/C

Time: 9:30 am - 10:30 am

  • Location:
  • PCCC Auditorium

Our world is changing and historic preservation must too. Cultural fragmentation, demographic shifts, economic and political transformation, climate change, and the emergence of digital technologies that affect our relationship to place—all of these realities must be faced if preservation is to embrace its rightful role as a living and vital connection to our past. Join the conversation with our panel of thinkers and doers as we ask: What role can preservation play in enhancing the financial, environmental, social, and cultural well-being of our communities? How can we embrace the past without losing sight of our future?

June 8, 2018

Audience: AIA

Time: 3:30 pm - 4:45 pm

  • Location:
  • Room 208 A&B

When disaster looms, the protection of cultural sites depends on emergency managers knowing what and where they are. Using GIS technology, the New Jersey Cultural Alliance (NJCAR) for Response, a network of libraries, museums, historic sites, and similar entities partnering with emergency managers to improve disaster readiness, launched a pilot project to map cultural assets in four Ocean County communities. Now in the proof-of-concept phase, local emergency managers will assess its viability for statewide use. This session will report on progress and discuss the challenges of uniform data gathering for emergency planning and response purposes.

Building envelopes provide shelter for all activities which occur within. They are made of many different types of materials and vary greatly in size and configuration. But from the moment they are constructed they start to deteriorate. The goal of this session, focused on roofs and facades, is to show how they are constructed, how and why they deteriorate and how to remedy a range of key problems which occur. In particular, each presenter will explore critical details for performance and longevity.
