WS1    DISASTER PREPAREDNESS AND RESPONSE

WS2    CONSERVATION OF METAL FINISHES IN MODERN ARCHITECTURE (1940-1970)
This workshop is sponsored by the APT Technical Committee on Modern Heritage. Beginning after World War II, architects and builders began employing off-the-shelf metal products like aluminum and stainless steel as both structural and decorative elements in modern buildings. The goal of the workshop is to be able to make intelligent and informed determinations regarding when these finishes can be preserved and when they need to be altered or replaced during retrofits and repairs.

WS3    CHOOSING TESTS AND EVALUATING RESULTS FOR HISTORIC MASONRY MATERIALS
Using lectures, demonstrations and hands-on experience, the workshop gives each participant a basic understanding of material properties and compositions of historic masonry (clay brick, natural and cast stone, mortars) determined through the use of laboratory tests and investigation, and to then correlate the data effectively in real world practice.

WS4    HANDS-ON CONSTRUCTION OF "GUASTAVINO" THIN TILE VAULTS

NYC

For the first time in history, the population of cities exceeds that of the surrounding suburbs and countryside. New York City, after decades of population decline, has recently exceeded its peak 1970s population and continues to grow. Such growth, mirrored in older and newer cities globally, is countered by cities with shrinking populations in the United States and abroad. Both expanding and shrinking cities present new challenges that require preservationists to think broadly and collaboratively, themes that will be highlighted at APT NYC 2013.
