Conference: Preserving the Metropolis

From: Mary Jablonski <mjablonski<-at->

International Conference
"Preserving the Metropolis"
New York City
October 11-15, 2013

For the first time in history, the population of cities exceeds that
of the surrounding suburbs and countryside. Both millennials and
baby boomers are flocking to city centers; New York City, after
decades of population decline, has recently exceeded its peak 1970s
population and continues to grow.

Both expanding and shrinking cities of all sizes present new
challenges that require preservationists to think broadly and
collaboratively, themes that will be highlighted during the 45th
Conference of The Association for Preservation Technology
International (APT) at the New York Marriott Marquis in Times
Square, October 11-15, 2013.

   "Whether dealing with pollution's effects, development pressures,
    unique infrastructure problems or energy needs related to
    building performance, the architects, planners, conservators,
    engineers and other preservationists attending New York City
    will continue to determine how we best protect our urban
    cultural heritage in this modern age," said Joan C. Berkowitz,
    President of APT.
