    Join us for networking and a presentation by Benjamin Ibarra-Sevilla, an Associate Professor of Architecture and Historic Preservation at the University of Texas at Austin. Benjamin will discuss two restoration projects of 16th century buildings in Oaxaca Mexico: the monastery of Santo Domingo de Guzman and the open chapel of Teposcolula. The projects highlight the revival of ancient building techniques and trades which are still alive in Mexico. These projects will also demonstrate distinct differences between building practices in Mexico and those implemented in the US.
