Room 104 / Convention Center First Floor
For the past 18 years, Harry Mark, AIA, has been the senior architect at Aphrodisias, the pilgrimage site for the Greek goddess Aphrodite. A renowned archaeological site in western Turkey and one of the best preserved Greco-Roman cities in all of Western Asia Minor, Aphrodisias offers a complete impression of urbanism, architecture, and life in a Greek city. Mark has led a team of graduate students in architecture each summer, teaching them the methodology of drawing, documenting, and reconstructing the architecture of ancient antiquity. The current campaign of drawing and documentation has been focused on urban development of the city center.
In this presentation, Mark will present current methods and materials used in the documentation of architectural antiquity, and present methodologies currently being used for the preservations and reconstruction of many of the buildings on site. Using a vast collection of sketches, measured drawings, digital documentation, photos, and publications, lessons learned from the origin of our cities and building roots will be discussed in a broad context of the importance of classical studies in our contemporary practice of architecture.
