Symposium: After-Life: the digital future of visual history archives

Design practices and collecting institutions are united
in grappling with the management and preservation of born-digital
records and the ever-growing demands of digital archival collections.

The Event:

The
annual ACAHUCH symposium for 2020 will bring together international and
national experts, local professionals and designers. Speakers will
assess lessons learned as we seek to continue to preserve, edit and
share architectural and design-related documentation, and will discuss
how to manage enduring access to digital design records including
photographs, moving image, CAD, BIM, and 3D modelling.

Keynote Speaker:

Martien de Vletter,
Associate Director of the Collection at the Canadian Centre for
Architecture (CCA), Montreal, where she is responsible for the digital
preservation and access program. Prior to this she was a curator at the
Netherlands Architecture Institute (NAI), Rotterdam, and has also
published widely on architecture and urbanism in the Netherlands and
Indonesia.
