Ice House on Main - Heritage Preservation in Support of Community Development

PRESENTED ON FEB 28, 2017
IN BRYAN @ VOL 10

Jose Quintana discusses AdventGX's heritage preservation model - a process that leverages a community centric mix of entrepreneurship, the arts, and science in support of the development of sustainable heritage preservation. The model is market demand driven along three sustainable development vectors: financial, social and environmental.

This conservative approach to community development uses behavioral and experimental economics to mitigate risks and lower barriers to entry when embarking on new heritage preservation initiatives, not only in underserved urban communities but also in rural settings where heritage based assets are particularly important contributors to quality of life improvements.

Creative Conservation

BY DAVID WOODCOCK
@ VOL 20 ON SEP 24, 2019

Interventions to the form and use of existing buildings are inevitable, as is the need for change. Preservationists “manage change wisely,” and as such are really Conservationists.  Creativity is as essential to heritage conservation as it is to the creation of new work. Indeed, it is arguable that to be a curator of built heritage as well as a creator of interventions requires greater skill and insight.
