Friday October 23
Beehive (1st floor, 951 Boylston Street)

The BAC's School of Design Studies, Historic Preservation, is pleased to welcome guest lecturer Morris "Marty" Hylton on Friday, October 23, 2015, at 5 pm in the Beehive. Marty is Director of the Historic Preservation program and Preservation Institute: Nantucket [PI:N] at the University of Florida's College of Design, Construction and Planning. He will discuss laser scanning technology, its use in the field, and how it is revolutionizing 3D documentation.

Currently, Marty's research focuses on community engagement, 3D imaging technology, and preserving heritage sites of the recent past, particularly postwar modern architecture and resources. As part of his duties at the University of Florida, Marty oversees the Center for World Heritage Research and Stewardship and its Envision Heritage initiative dedicated to exploring how new and emerging technologies can be harnessed to help document, conserve and interpret historic places.

This lecture is informative across all programs as laser scanning technology can be used in various capacities like 3D fly-through tours, or site documentation; not just historic preservation applications.

This lecture is sponsored by: the National College of Arts, Rawalpindi, Pakistan and the Boston Architectural College University Partnership for Architecture and Heritage Conservation and Management
