Pacific Northwest Preservation Field School

University of Oregon Historic Preservation Program

Program

The Pacific Northwest Field School is open to everyone! Our curriculum is designed to include all those interested in archaeology, architecture, cultural resource management, history, interior architecture, landscape architecture, public history, and hands-on building maintenance as it addresses historic preservation.  The Field School is intended for anyone who is seeking hands-on experience working with preservation craftspeople in the spectacular Pacific Northwest. Students are at the project site each day, where their lessons are interspersed with discussions, tours, projects, and nightly lectures from preservation professionals. This program is open to novice and practicing cultural resource professionals. Undergraduate and graduate credit is also available.

Location

The Field School takes place in late summer at different historic sites in Oregon, Washington, or Idaho each year. Participants can choose one or more sessions during the month-long Field School.

The 2018 Pacific Northwest Field School will be located in Concrete, WA in the foothills of the North Cascades. There will be three sessions in the late summer that will vary in focus. Projects will include window and door restoration, cast concrete repair work, and cultural landscape investigation. While each session has a theme, all entail hands-on work, documentation, a field trip, and nightly lectures given by cultural resource professionals.

Hello, we are looking forward to the possibility of seeing you in Astoria at our 2018 conference, May 18th to 20th. We have an exciting program planned, beginning on Friday with a look at the new Columbia River Maritime Museum and ending on Sunday with an extensive tour of the Astoria area, highlighting the newly restored Astoria Column and including tours of Middle Village, which is part of the Lewis & Clark National Historical Park, the Fort Columbia Historical State Park, and the Columbia River Quarantine Station. We have an excellent slate of paper presentations for Saturday morning at our hosts, Clatsop Community College. And we are looking forward to the annual banquet at the Silver Salmon Grill in Astoria.

Please note that if you want to stay at the conference hotel, Hotel Elliott, a bank of rooms at a special rate is being held for us until March 18th. Note however that there are plenty of good choices for accommodations nearby as well.

We will be finalizing the papers schedule and program in the next couple of weeks and sending out the final program. At that point, you will be able to register for the conference.

If you want to go on the bus tour, we are asking that you register for the conference and that tour by May 4th so we can make arrangements with the bus company.

Between Art and Architecture

Winter 2018 UW Department of Architecture Lecture Series

February 28    6 PM

Yumi Kori  I Tokyo/Osaka, Studio Myu

Between Art and Architecture

Co-sponsored by the UW Japan Studies Program

Screen Shot 2018-02-14 at 7.25.37 AM.png

Yumi Kori is a Japanese-born artist and architect based in New York and Tokyo. She established Studio MYU Architects in Tokyo in 1986 and has degrees from Kyoto Prefecture University and Columbia GSAPP. Kori is Professor at Osaka Institute of Technology, Design and Architecture, and has taught at Columbia, Barnard, Yale, Parsons, the University of Brasilia and the Nagoya Institute of Technology. She is also the recipient of numerous prestigious awards including the Architectural Institute of Japan Prize in 2015; the ar+d award by The Architectural Review, London in 2002 and 2003.

 Kori works with the context of the place and transforms it into another space by using light, sound and architectural settings. Her installations invite visitors to walk into the space. Audiences experience the altered space through their body and senses. Thus the visitor discovers new spatial and temporal dimensions hidden in the existing space. Projects have been realized in public space, ruins, abandoned buildings and museums through out the world, including New York, Seattle, Washington DC, Berlin, Basel, Sao Paulo and Tokyo.
