Replacement Materials Symposium

June 10 @ 8:00 am - 4:00 pm

The Maryland Association of Historic District Commissions will hold a 2017 Symposium to tackle the frequently controversial issue of substitute materials in historic places. Attendees will participate in interactive sessions led by leading practitioners in the field to consider:

  • Why do preservationists have a tradition of retaining historic materials and how do replacement materials fit in?
  • What are the current trends in historic preservation commissions accepting or denying substitute materials?
  • How do commission and staff best incorporate alternate materials into their design review process and guidelines?
  • What do these replacement materials look and feel like up close?

A highlight of the day will be a Vendor Hall of leading manufacturers of some of the most popular types of alternative materials.
