Guild member Bruce Lindsay, of North Vancouver, B.C., gave a presentation in Istanbul, Turkey, in March 2015, at a symposium on restoration and conservation of Timber Structures. This meeting was sponsored by the Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality Dept. of Cultural Assets. Bruce's talk on cross-functional teams featured the Pemberton Market Barn, a May 2015 Guild project.
Bruce says, "The other presenters also had lots of sexy stuff on Chinese bridges, restoration of wooden buildings, and structural engineering for earthquakes etc etc." When the tensions in Turkey ease up, we'll hear more from Bruce about historic preservation there.
