University College centre to preserve historic heritage

  • Comment

University College London is setting up an interdisciplinary centre to deal with historic buildings, objects and sites. The Bartlett School is behind the centre, along with the Institute of Archaeology and the School of Library, Archive and Information Studies. The centre will carry out research, run courses and offer advice on 'the sustainable use and integrated preservation of the immovable and movable heritage across the areas of architecture, engineering, conservation, design and management'.

May Cassar, environmental director at the former Museums and Galleries Commission, Resource: The Council for Museums, Archives and Libraries, will start work on 1 March as the first director of the centre. She told the AJ: 'It will break people out of their silos. It will get people talking to each other to remove pre-conceptions about different professions working in the field.'
