Columbia University

Taught by Adam Lowe and Carlos Bayod, the course Advanced Preservation Technology Studio inaugurated in Fall 2016 at Columbia University's Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation (GSAPP). The Studio is a project-based course focusing on advanced applications of technology for digital preservation.

The course provides students with an opportunity to carry out specific, international projects of different scales. Activities such as the digitization of artworks and where appropriate, the production of facsimiles aim to help students develop a methodology and a criteria for conducting digital conservation and consider the use of digital technology in a broader cultural, political and aesthetic context.
