Optional Afternoon Tour

Workshop attendees are being offered a special “Behind the Scenes” tour of Doris Duke’s “Shangri La” residence and museum. The site is typically closed to the public in the month of September, but APT has been able to set up a private tour experience! This unique tour will be augmented by discussions with Shangri La Lead Conservator, Kent Severson, and local Hawaiian preservation architecture firm, Mason Architects – who were involved in recent preservation and conservation efforts. Space is limited to 25 people on a first-come/first-serve basis. http://shangrilahawaii.org/

This workshop, “Documentation Data: The Platform for Condition Analysis and the Basis for Preservation Project Planning”, was originally presented as part of the APT annual conference in Quebec in 2014 and has now been formatted to “travel” to its first host: the APT-Hawaii-Pacific Islands Chapter.

The venue for both the presentations and the field demonstrations will be the Cathedral Basilica of Our Lady of Peace.
