APT: International Annual Conference

Association for Preservation Technology International Annual ConferenceCrossroads in Heritage Conservation: When Modern Becomes Historic Atlanta, GeorgiaSeptember 16-18, 2006 According to today's broad definition of "historic resource," buildings, objects and landscapes are now an important part of a broader cultural environment. Diverse cultural resources are being conserved and "modern" resources and technologies that created them are being acknowledged. APT 2006 will explore the challenges and rewards of this current perspective on the historic, which includes recent events, diverse cultural perspectives, and innovations in architecture, industry and technology.The conference theme, while addressing issues that apply to the entire preservation community, relates directly to Atlanta, which evolved from a railroad terminus into a commercial and transportation hub. Atlanta and the southeast region embrace our cultural resources as well as our "historic" modern structures.The conference will be held at the Atlanta Hilton in the heart of downtown Atlanta, Georgia. Come visit us in Atlanta, and enjoy all of the hospitality that the southeast region has to offer.
