Work of MPS Faculty Michael Shoriak, Courtney Williams, and Robby Cangelosi Featured in The Advocate

Courtney Williams and Michael Shoriak of Cypress Building Conservation and Robby Cangelosi of Koch and Wilson Architects have been working on a major HVAC retrofit for the Hermann-Grima House, one of News Orleans most significant house museums. The project carefully studied the best approach to sensitively install new equipment in the historic structure with minimal destruction to provide optimal performance balancing preservation of the museum collections and human comfort. It is hoped that the results will serve as a model for other museums.

Studio I: Building Preservation concentrates on documenting, analyzing and planning for the preservation of historic buildings as a basis for understanding the technical, theoretical and procedural aspects of architectural preservation practice.  The course includes intensive study of selected historic buildings and environments in the New Orleans area and greater Gulf Coast region. The studio will explore the differences between building stabilization, adaptive reuse, rehabilitation and restoration.
