WS2 - Conservation of Dry-Laid Stone Masonry: It’s Not Just Stacking Stone!
The Kansas City’s Parks and Boulevard system and rural Kansas / Missouri are home to miles of dry-laid stone fences and retaining walls.  This full two-day workshop will cover the conservation of dry laid stone and techniques involved for reconstruction.  The workshop will include education sessions of the history of dry-laid stone and tools of the trade, tours of recently conserved dry-laid stone retaining walls reviewing unique techniques inherent in the Midwest, and interactive demonstrations and hands-on field work guided by a master craftsman to learn basic dry laid stone techniques and rebuild sections of dry laid stone walls.

The workshop will begin with practical lectures about mechanical systems for historic fountains, water quality testing, and issues associated with fountain preservation.

SY1 – Renewing Modernism: Emerging Principles for Practice
Leading modern-era building practitioners and technical experts from around the world will convene for an intensive one day working session to discuss emerging trends in renewing Modernism and draft consensus “Principles for Practice.” Opening sessions will articulate issues and needs to be addressed by the working document, such as differences between traditional and modern era buildings that raise philosophical challenges in applying traditional conservation approaches to repair or replacement decisions, and the need for improved consistency in expectations regarding appropriate treatment.  

Sponsored by the Association for Preservation Technology International, the symposium is structured to make the most of the technical expertise and collaborative philosophy that is the strength of APT.  Proposed speaker/panelists include representatives from APT’s Technical Committee on Modern Heritage and Technical Committee on Sustainable Preservation, ICOMOS, DOCOMOMO, AIC, AIA/HRC, RAIC and the Cultural Landscape Foundation. The intended result of the symposium will be a working document intended to serve as a point of departure for further discussion, refinement, or adoption by APT and affiliated technical organizations.
affiliated technical organizations.

Those attending the Symposium will have priority in registering for FS17.
