Donald Friedman, president of New York-based Old Structures Engineering and one of the leading consultants in structural engineering for historic and old buildings, presents "Disaster Response in Urban Heritage Environments" at "Disaster," the 13th Annual Historic Preservation Symposium at Texas A&M.
The symposium was hosted Feb. 24 and 25, 2012, by Texas A&M's Center for Heritage Conservation and the Hazard Reduction & Recovery Center.
His lecture addressed the conflict between heritage principles and emergency safety actions, which are exacerbated by modern city centers' density and adjacent construction, and the obsolete structure of historic buildings, their fire-resistance and egress systems.
