Heritage Architecture and Digital Archives

The intern will work coilaboratively with the Canadian Heritage Information Network to develop a knowledge based digital archive for heritage conservation generally and, more specifically, for materials applications and methods of construction related to heritage buildings. The archive, entitled Heritage Architecture and Digital Archives (HADA) will not only address technological challenges, but also effectively contextualize the complex and diverse forms of information that distinguish this field of study. Knowledge, in contrast to data, is a necessary part of a social, geographic and temporal milieu.
