Buffalo’s reputation for preservation efforts has been rewarded by being selected as host of the 2018 Preservation Technology International conference.
“APT Buffalo Niagara 2018” will be the 50th anniversary annual conference for The Association for Preservation Technology International (APT), an organization dedicated to promoting the best technology for conserving historic structures and their settings.
Flynn Battaglia Architects’ LaLuce Mitchell, LEED AP BD+C and Barbara A. Campagna, FAIA LEED AP BD+C worked hard to put together last fall’s presentation to convince the Board to bring the conference to our border city. APT members from over 30 different countries are expected to attend.
Buffalo is home to major architectural works from each of America’s greatest architects from the end of the 19th century – Frank Lloyd Wright, H.H. Richardson, and Louis Sullivan. Each of their National Historic Landmark masterpieces has been fully restored or is currently undergoing a major restoration.
The 2014 APT conference will be held in Quebec City October 26-30.
