NATIONAL PRESERVATION SEMINARS SET FOR MAY 1 – 3 IN PORTLAND
The National Preservation Institute, in cooperation with the Oregon
Department of Transportation and the Oregon State Historic Preservation
Office, presents “The Recent Past: A Review of Mid-20th-Century
Resources” May 1 – 2, and “Preservation Planning and Policy Development
for Historic Roads” on May 3 in Portland. The seminars will run from 9
a.m. – 5 p.m. all three days.
In “The Recent Past: A Review of Mid-20th-Century Resources”,
instructors James C. Massey and Shirley Maxwell will review nationwide
trends in post-World War II houses and commercial structures up to 1970,
with an emphasis on the evolution of suburban development patterns,
construction methods, and building types. They will also examine
era-specific factors that help to identify and evaluate these buildings
in terms of their significance for eligibility for listing in the
National Register and consideration of Section 106, Section 110, and
Section 4(f) regulatory issues.
“Preservation Planning and Policy Development for Historic Roads” will
explore the current tools and techniques used for the identification,
preservation, and management of historic roads. As an emerging area of
historic preservation, planning and policy for historic roads presents
new challenges for the historic preservation professional. Instructor
Dan Marriot will teach how to apply transportation policies to historic
roads, balance safety and function with historic preservation
objectives, and build awareness and new constituencies for the legacy of
highway design in the United States.
These seminars meet the criteria for programs in the American Institute
of Architects (AIA) and the American Society of Landscape Architects
(ASLA) Continuing Education System. AIA and ASLA members will receive 6
learning units each day.
