Step by step. Another gorgeous staircase - this one perfectly preserves the original Spanish tile from this fabulous Bay Area home. Who else wants to run up those stairs and explore the rest of the home? 📷: @jute_interior_design

My hometown has revitalized an old theatre and has been showing classic movies each month. So fun! Last night we watched National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation 🎅🏻What neat things does your hometown do to preserve old spaces?

#Timelapse#graphicdesign work in progress. The #RochMN St. Mary’s water tower transformed into a street sign topper, execution of a neighborhood vision. A collaboration with Historic SW Neighborhood Association, Rneighbors and the City of Rochester.

TEFAF Museum Restoration Fund - part 6 - TEFAF & The Rijksmuseum van Oudheden:
In 2014 the @rijksmuseumvanoudheden, Leiden, The Netherlands was awarded funding for the restoration of three coffin sets and one inner sarcophagus from the 21st dynasty (c. 1069 - 945 BC), discovered in 1891 at Bab el-Gasus, near the Valley of the Kings and modern-day Luxor.
The #restoration was part of the "#Vatican Coffin Project", an international team project, set up in 2008 by the Egyptian Department of the Vatican Museums, in collaboration with the Diagnostic Laboratory for #Conservation and Restoration of the Vatican Museums, to study polychrome coffins of the Third Intermediate Period in its first phase, but with the intention of later extending the project to different periods. In cooperation with @vaticanmuseums @rijksmuseumvanoudheden, @museelouvre, @museoegizio
The VCP has as its first goal a study of the construction and painting techniques of coffins, and, as its second, the identification of any “atelier”.
TODAY!! // OHSU Campus – Places and Spaces // South Waterfront Tram Station // Explore the site and learn the history of the OHSU medical center which is precariously built on top of a ridge with great views but very challenging access.
We’ll walk the campus and see some architectural highlights and enjoy a number of stunning views before catching the tram back to the starting point.

Residents of McKeesport: I would like to bring your attention to ''another example'' of historic ruination in our city.
I recently visited the George Washington school in Washington PA and trust me there is no such preservation of materials. The majority is going to landfill. The fact that these types of buildings have been left so long to have to arrive at this juncture is disgusting in itself. With a little attention and care these could've been preserved for a greater debut [loft accommodations] once again we see a very narrowminded vision. I remind you again it is exactly these types of buildings that give a flavor and charm to a city. The continued disregard by it's current leadership will only end in the city left with ''nothing at all' 'to offer the future post this continued wake of destruction. When will they wake up and realize the true value! #Resurrection#Loft#Redesign#Architecture#Historical#Preservation#Reimagine#GlenJacksonDesign#salvage#Recycle#Mckeesport#Pittsburgh#Pennsylvania#GeorgeWashingtonschols#demolition#DavidSeropian#McKeesportAreaSchooldDistrict#Franjo
