Tuesday, May 10th AT THE GENERAL SOCIETY LIBRARY at 6.30pm
Glenn Boornazian, President and Principal Architectural Conservator for Integrated Conservation Resources (ICR) along with his colleagues Jennifer Schork and Christy Lombardo will discuss the varied skills and equipment required in the design of Architectural Conservation programs for historic buildings and monuments from the perspective of the artisan and scientist.
Each speaker will address their own area of expertise and present this information by reviewing some recent ICR projects including, the conservation of four temple complexes at Angkor, Cambodia; the Cloister at St Trophime in Arles, France; the McKim Building at the Morgan Library and some mid Century Modern structures as well.
In 1988, Mr. Boornazian founded Integrated Conservation Resources, Inc. and Integrated Conservation Contracting, Inc. in order to combine investigative architectural conservation services with high-quality conservation and restoration contracting; and provide technical services for historic buildings and monuments. After studying at Columbia University’s Graduate Program in Historic Preservation, Glenn Boornazian served as Staff Conservator for the Center for Preservation Research at Columbia University and Director of Restoration for the Nantucket (Massachusetts) Historical Association.
Christy Lombardo received her Master of Science in Historic Preservation, with an emphasis in building conservation, from the University of Pennsylvania. Prior to joining ICR, she worked as a teaching assistant for the UPenn international conservation seminar in England.
