Beyond the Bucket List: New Approaches to Sustainable Tourism and Heritage Documentation

  • Dates: 11 – 11 Dec, 2017
  • Location: Chicago, Illinois
Dr. Danielle S. Willkens, Associate AIA, FRSA, LEED AP BD+C

Informed by her tenure as the Society of Architectural Historians' H. Allen Brooks Travelling Fellow (June 2016 through May 2017), this lecture will explore the impacts of tourism on historic sites in islands recently overwhelmed by visitor numbers: Iceland, the Faroe Islands, Cuba, and Japan. In addition to the examination of divergent approaches to the curation of architectural heritage, this talk will outline new methodologies for documenting the built and natural environment, amalgamating 21st-century tools with traditional techniques.
