ABOUT

National Trust Conference 2016
in association with the Canadian Association of Heritage Professionals

 

Heritage places are rising stars. They have an authenticity and vibrancy that can’t be purchased off-the-rack and they sit at the intersection of defining issues of our time – how to live sustainably and equitably.

National Trust Conference 2016, Heritage Rising, is inspired by Hamilton, a resilient city with an exceptional heritage legacy that has bounced back from the decline of its industrial sector. It now boasts one of Canada’s fastest growing economies. Propelled by a growing creative sector and a blend of grassroots and public projects, heritage-led regeneration is transforming the city’s urban fabric and creating a dynamic new civic identity.

Heritage Rising will explore the cutting-edge of heritage thought and practice, in Canada and abroad, including Indigenous heritage, rural revitalization and climate change. It will also build on Hamilton’s experience to examine how heritage reflects cultural diversity and contributes to social goals like poverty reduction, food security and public health.

The annual National Trust Conference is Canada’s largest event for professionals, practitioners and volunteers engaged in regenerating and saving our heritage places. The 500-plus participants expected at Heritage Rising will come from a diverse range of backgrounds: architects, professionals and trades; planners and government representatives; heritage organizations, volunteers and the general public; and university instructors and students.

9:00 am – 4:00 pm Conservation of Metal Finishes in Modern Architecture
Read more

Who Should Attend?


Professionals, consultants and others interested in the conservation of heritage materials.

Workshop Description:
The analysis and restoration of original decorative finishes on modern architectural metals is not always well understood. As a result, such testing or treatment is less well integrated into regular preservation practice than that of other materials and finishes, particularly those in architectural contexts such as decorative painting or plasterwork. Decorative metal finishes may be microscopically thin and fleeting, and they do not typically accumulate in a series of strata that can be sampled and studied through traditional optical microscopy.

There are many reasons why the evidence of a decorative metal finish is often difficult to characterize. These might include:

-its likelihood of being severely degraded or altered through exposure, oxidation and wear;
-the difficulty of discerning an intentional patina from incidental corrosion products;
-the chance that the original scheme may have been intentionally removed.

The instructors have developed a framework of research, investigation and implementation that has resulted in the successful investigation and restoration of significant and complex finishes. This workshop presents an introductory approach to understanding, identifying, investigating and restoring original decorative architectural metal finishes. It includes case studies of successfully completed projects. It will also demonstrate how a variety of instruments from the small and relatively inexpensive (ultrasonic thickness gauge) to the large and highly sophisticated (x-ray fluorescence) can be used to help characterize both the nature and the relative condition of these finishes and their substrates. Additionally, there will be a hands-on workshop which will demonstrate different cleaning methods and materials that are available to the user. These will include, but are not limited to: laser, CO2, water jetting and other forms of abrasive techniques. If time permits, the application of different aesthetic surface treatments and protective coatings will be demonstrated.

Learning objectives


-To understand the general history and technology of how complex decorative metal finishes —such as patinas, gilding and plating — are applied or developed
-To understand the deterioration mechanisms that affect these finishes and the implications for their preservation.
-To understand the range of instruments available to help characterize the nature and condition of these decorative finishes and their host metals
-To understand the different cleaning techniques that are available for the treatment of decorative metals and how these impact the surface finish and substrate.
-To understand how different aesthetic surface treatments and protective coatings are applied to decorative metals and the impact they have on the care and maintenance of these materials.

Walking Tour

Leaders: Nicholas Kevlahan & Ned Nolan (Durand Neighbourhood Association)



Led by local residents Nicholas Kevlahan and Ned Nolan, this tour will take you from the downtown core to the edge of Hamilton's escarpment. It will also travel through time, from Hamilton's 1850s-1860s "stone age" of buildings constructed from locally quarried whirlpool sandstone and dolomite, to the impressive brick mansions built just under the escarpment by Hamilton's captains of industry in the 1890s and early 1900s. On the way back down you will pass the many high-rise apartment buildings that began to replace the Victorian neighbourhood in the 1960s and 1970s until the neighbours organized to resist further demolitions.

The walk will take in two designated heritage districts, a national historic site, the first graded public school in Ontario and work by notable local architects John Lyle and James Balfour. This roughly 4 km tour will depart from outside Whitehern at the corner of Jackson and MacNab.

Walking Tour

Leaders: Sonia Mrva (Curator, City of Hamilton) & Christopher Redford (Heritage Presentation Coordinator, City of Hamilton)



Throughout Hamilton’s history, waves of newcomers have added layers to the history and culture of the city. Settling in areas where work and affordable housing were available, immigrants shaped the landscape of North Hamilton in particular. Community organizations and religious institutions were established to support the needs of these communities. “Worker” housing was built to provide immigrants with homes close to the mills and factories. Centers of entertainment, education and dining were tailored to the newly arrived.

Join Sonia Mrva and Christopher Redford from the Heritage Resource Management section of the City of Hamilton as they lead participants through a rapidly re-developing portion of the north end of the City, where a historical tapestry of immigration, settlement, labour and industry can still be explored through stories and architecture.

Field Session

Leader: Donovan Pauly (Architectural Conservator, Clifford Restoration, Toronto, ON)



This field session consists of a tour of the Lister Block building and a discussion of the rehabilitation project followed by a hands-on demonstration of some terra cotta unit repair techniques. This session aims to give the participants a basic introduction to the material and its use in architecture historic and modern, along with current best practice in regards to the conservation of architectural terra cotta in historic buildings. This session uses the rehabilitation of the iconic Lister block in Hamilton as an example.

In this brief session we touch on the versatility of the material in architecture and provide some technical details of terra cotta fabrication and production methods both historic and modern. The session also aims to highlight some methodologies for the diagnosis of faults in architectural terra cotta cladding on historic structures and typical failures. Traditional and modern repair methods are discussed along with the use of alternative materials for the replacement of failed original terra cotta units in the context of the Lister Block rehabilitation/adaptive use project.

Learning Objectives

1. Give participants an overview of the Lister Block rehabilitation project.
2. Provide basic introduction to terra cotta cladding in architecture.
3. Demonstrate some specific techniques used in the conservation and repair of the terra cotta cladding on this project.

Leader: Ken Coit (Architect, Urban Designer and Local Historian)



This walking tour will explore James Street North, home to an emerging arts district and the area at heart of the current renewal of downtown Hamilton. The city’s main north-south street since its founding, James Street is home to a diverse set of buildings representing the social, economic and stylistic influences of the last 150 years. In decline for most of the late 20th century, its unique collection of buildings and streetscape has been recently embraced by artists and the creative industries who are now undertaking the area’s renewal. The tour will discuss the evolution of the street’s recent revival, the stories of many of the small projects and businesses responsible for the change and will visit some of the landmark adaptive re-use projects along the street including the Art Deco Piggott Building, the recently restored Lister Block, and the Beaux- Arts former CN Railway Station, now the LIUNA Station banquet facility.

Field Session



Join Willowbank and members of the Indigenous community for a tour of the Willowbank grounds and building, located in beautiful Queenston, Ontario. The visit will focus on how heritage sites have the ability to be a part of solving national and global issues through grassroots endeavours, one of which is reconciliation with our Indigenous communities. Learn about Willowbank’s new and growing relationship with the local Indigenous community and how together they are rejuvenating the site’s aboriginal layer through the Willowbank Community Love Garden. After, enjoy a light meal where we will discuss the multiple layers of Willowbank and the benefits of creating sustainable relationships that will help Willowbank continue to grow and evolve.

As the relationship with the Indigenous community has developed naturally and organically over time and has allowed Willowbank to re-connect with natural resources on the site, they believe that the best way to experience the cultural landscape of this site is through a shared meal, partially produced from Willowbank’s own garden, to share conversation and ideas in a more inclusive setting and experience being a part of a place that breaks down hierarchies and understands that a cultural landscape is necessarily an experienced landscape.

Urban heritage is of vital importance for our cities – there is growing interest for heritage districts as a planning tool that municipalities can use to manage and guide change in historically important areas. In this session, we will discuss the strategic approach taken by Toronto City Planning in developing Heritage Conservation Districts (HCDs) under the Ontario Heritage Act and with our consultants examine recent HCDs in the downtown core (St. Lawrence Neighbourhood, Historic Yonge and King/Spadina) and how they contribute to a new planning framework for highly dynamic urban areas.

Read more

Field Session



Join Willowbank and members of the Indigenous community for a tour of the Willowbank grounds and building, located in beautiful Queenston, Ontario. The visit will also focus on how heritage sites have the ability to be a part of solving national and global issues through grassroots endeavours, one of which is reconciliation with our Indigenous communities. Learn about Willowbank’s new and growing relationship with the local Indigenous community and how together they are rejuvenating the site’s aboriginal layer through the Willowbank Community Love Garden. After, enjoy a light meal where we will discuss the multiple layers of Willowbank and the benefits of creating sustainable relationships that will help Willowbank continue to grow and evolve. The relationship with the Indigenous community has developed naturally and organically over time and has allowed Willowbank to re-connect with natural resources on the site. Willowbank believes that the best way to experience the cultural landscape of this site is through a shared meal, partially produced from Willowbank’s own garden, to share conversation and ideas in a more inclusive setting and experience being a part of a place that breaks down hierarchies and understands that a cultural landscape is necessarily an experienced landscape.

Beasley Neighbourhood Community Member (TBA)

Heritage conservation is increasingly at the forefront of dialogue around development pressures and changing patterns of urban development. Each municipality faces unique challenges that are best met with unique solutions for identifying and conserving community-focused heritage. Sophisticated and sensitive approaches to managing pressures while preserving social and cultural values are necessary.

The process of working toward these approaches, including success stories and cautionary tales, can be shared for everyone’s benefit. This workshop is intended to serve as a discussion forum and brainstorming session for heritage conservation practitioners who work with urban heritage. It will provide an opportunity to share ideas, strategies and experiences from the field and identify ways in which practitioners can support one another during a period of local systemic change and transformation.

During this workshop, heritage conservation staff at the City of Hamilton will discuss one of the ways they are responding to urban development pressure at a citywide level, using emerging inventory, characterization, consultation and mapping strategies, as well as new digital technologies, to understand neighborhood heritage in cost-effective, but integrative ways. This approach aims to be proactive, allowing the city to prioritize efforts and identify a range of tools to position heritage as a vital component of good urban development.

Following the classroom session, there will be a walk around Beasley, one of Hamilton’s historic downtown neighborhoods that has been inventoried and assessed. This field session will include a demonstration of accessible digital tools that can support a community-focused urban heritage study, in order to understand Hamilton's approach ‘on the ground.’

Learning Objectives:

To share knowledge and experiences about:

-Contemporary ideas about urban heritage and its renewal (principles and practices)
-Goals for urban heritage across Canada
-Emerging tools and strategies – what’s worked well and less well
-Shared priorities for urban heritage

Grant Avenue Bob Doidge and Amy King

Bob Doidge & Amy King

Bob Doidge and Amy King, producers, recording engineers and musicians at Hamilton’s Grant Avenue Studio, have worked with countless local talents and international artists. Located in a century-old house downtown, the studio came perilously close to closing in 2015. But, after a successful crowdfunding campaign, and with the help Gordon Lightfoot and Daniel Lanois, the studio was saved.

more. . .

Bob Doidge, owner of the Grant Avenue Studio, began his musical career working with Canadian artists such as Ian Thomas and Sylvia Tyson in the 1970s. Bob and his bandmates Daniel Lanois and Bob Lanois soon found themselves recording artists such as Raffi, Bruce Cockburn and countless other local acts, and so began Grant Avenue Studio. Bob took ownership of the studio in the early 1980s when Daniel Lanois went abroad to work with the rock band, U2.

Bob’s discography as a producer and engineer boasts a long list of artists, such as Gordon Lightfoot, U2, Johnny Cash, Ani DiFranco, Bob Dylan, Bruce Cockburn, Blackie and the Rodeo Kings and many more. Artists trust him with their music and consider him a friend.

Originally from Newfoundland, Amy King graduated from the Recording Arts of Canada Institute in 2002. She landed a post-graduate internship at the famous Grant Avenue Studio. As a sound engineer and producer, Amy has received several Hamilton Music Awards for her engineering and musical collaborations. Amy’s training for a career in music started at the age of five. As an accomplished pianist, Amy has received 15 awards for piano performances, a background which has served her well in working with musicians from Gordon Lightfoot to emerging musicians, area schools and community performance groups.
