Robert Z. Melnick, professor of landscape architecture and director of the John Yeon Center for Architectural Studies at the University of Oregon, presents "Protecting Resources That Matter in a Future of Uncertainty," the keynote address of “Disaster,” the 13th Annual Historic Preservation symposium at Texas A&M.
The event was sponsored by the Center for Heritage Conservation and the Hazard Reduction & Recovery Center Feb. 24 - 25, 2012.
Melnick discussed the future of cultural resource protection in light of critical environmental and social developments, with special attention to unanticipated disasters.
As an internationally recognized expert in cultural landscape evaluation and historic landscape preservation planning, he suggested reconsidering how critical cultural resources are identified. He focused on the need for stability and flexibility in approaches to preservation, identify lessons from other fields and propose future preservation strategies.
