CHC symposium

Center for Heritage Conservation holds seventh Historic Preservation Symposium



The Center for Heritage Conservation held its Seventh Annual Historic Preservation Symposium, “Preparation for Preservation Practice: A Comprehensive Perspective,” March 24-25 in the Preston M. Geren Auditorium at Texas A&M University’s Langford Architecture Center.

The annual symposium, which coincided with the National Council of Preservation Education’s spring 2006 board meeting, also at Texas A&M, explored the various approaches to preparing professionals for the practice of historic preservation.

The center also held pre-symposium workshops and demonstrations at the College of Architecture’s soon to be completed “Architecture Ranch” facility at Texas A&M’s Riverside Campus.

“With the recent adoption of National Architectural Accreditation Board criteria requiring knowledge of key philosophies and legislation relating to work on existing buildings, as well as the influence of vernacular architecture,” center director David Woodcock said, “this year’s topic was timely for architectural education, and it will provide an opportunity to reinforce the value of cross-disciplinary teams.”
