A RESILIENT HERITAGE: DESIGNING SAN ANTONIO’S FUTURE TO PRESERVE OUR PAST

People are what make a place truly sustainable. In the face of natural disasters and rapid change, we can proactively design to retain wisdom of past generations and promote survival of cultural identity. Join us as Professor Dupont explores lessons from around the world to conserve the unique heritage values of San Antonio through his work at the UTSA Center for Cultural Sustainability.

Projects have included evaluations of historic buildings; feasibility plans to save living heritage; support to city leaders and community groups grappling with development and growth issues in heritage zones; and designing conservation objectives for internationally significant cultural resources.
