Randolph Langenbach, a Fellow at the American Academy in Rome, presents “Traditional is Modern: Pre-modern Earthquake-resistant Technologies that May Be Able to Teach Us How to Keep Modern Buildings From Collapsing.”

Langenbach made the presentation at “Disaster,” the 13th Annual Historic Preservation Symposium, hosted by Texas A&M's Center for Heritage Conservation and the Hazard Reduction & Recovery Center Feb. 24 and 25, 2012.

He is an expert in earthquake-resistant retrofits for historic structures, conservation of masonry buildings, building code compliance issues, post-disaster damage assessment and repair, development of innovative strategies for cost-effective rehabilitation, and historic preservation documentation and photography.
