Vanishing Teasures 2017 Training – CORE course
This course will focus on common building systems found in the American West, their history of use, construction techniques, and common mechanisms of deterioration. Trainees will learn how to identify causes and factors of deterioration in historic structures, using this information to direct appropriate intervention. Located in Grand Teton National Park, students will have a chance to use park resources as case studies for exploring how building systems and their maintenance are affected and directed by their environment. The workshop will be split between classroom and field exercises.
