THE BALANCING ACT - ACCESSIBILITY & PRESERVATION

FE3

10:30 am-11:45 am • Location: 201

The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) prohibits discrimination and ensures equal opportunity for persons with disabilities in public accommodations and commercial facilities. Historic buildings predate the ADA and some exceptions are therefore given, however, the U.S. Department of the Interior asks, “not if access should be provided; the question is how to provide it to meet both accessibility and historic preservation requirements.” In this session, a panel of architects, preservationists, and an accessibility expert will address unique ways of addressing accessibility requirements as explained through current projects like the McNichols Building in Civic Center Park. *AIA HSW CONTINUING EDUCATION CREDIT Speakers: Chris Phelps (Training Consultant, Rocky Mountain ADA Center), Dennis Humphries (Principal, Humphries Poli Architects), Kelly Wemple (Preservation Specialist, Humphries Poli Architects) FE4

10:30 am-11:45 am • Location: 107

Adobe (unfired mud brick masonry) buildings are synonymous with the southwest. Adobe as a building material is often mistreated and damaged by well-meaning individuals applying modern materials and techniques to this historic building method. However, with proper maintenance these sentinels of the southwest can continue to share their beauty with future generations. This session will provide participants with a basic understanding of what adobe is and what to look for when maintaining historic adobe. Session presenters will discuss the basic engineering properties of adobe and describe how the typical adobe structure is built. They will also identify traditional and modern adobe additives used to increase weathering strength, and identify various adobe structural problems and their symptoms. *AIA CONTINUING EDUCATION CREDIT Speakers: Jedidiah Williamson (Martin/Martin Consulting Engineers)

Hold on to your pillbox hats! It’s time for another session of preservation trivia! In the decade or two following the end of World War II, life got pretty interesting for Americans. House styles changed, recreation changed, and the consumer became king/queen after a long period of economic depression and war-driven belt tightening. This interactive session invites audience members to play along and learn about the architecture and cultural landscapes of the postwar period via a trivia game. Chances are you know more than you think you do! Speakers: Abbey Christman (Associate City Planner in Landmark Preservation, City and County of Denver), Kathleen Corbett (Architectural Historian, Corbett AHS, Inc.), Jim Steely (Historian/Architectural Historian, Independent Consultant)
