Boulder, Colorado (PRWEB) November 30, 2012
Adventures in Preservation (AiP) announces the unveiling of a new logo that represents the organization’s vision and a new focus to better address its mission. The logo was designed by one of AiP’s talented young interns, Austin Mackesy-Buckley.
Adventures in Preservation envisions a world where people use, understand, and appreciate historic buildings that are vital to economic and environmental sustainability and preserve cultural identity. AiP projects are open to everyone interested in hands-on involvement in building preservation.
The organization’s new approach will focus on involving more students and professionals studying and working in fields related to historic preservation, such as art conservation, preservation planning, and building conservation and restoration, in its projects. “A great many people are interested in cultural heritage conservation around the world, and AiP’s projects provide a perfect opportunity for them to convert that interest into action”, says AiP Program Director Judith Broeker.
Austin Mackesy-Buckley’s striking new logo reflects the new focus. The image is based on a compass pattern he found in examples of Portuguese tiling traditionally used in Gaiola construction. His reinterpretation represents heritage, travel and exploration, perfectly capturing AiP’s experiential travel programs. Austin has a Masters Degree in Architecture from Victoria University in Wellington, New Zealand. His own focus has always been on heritage buildings, enhanced by a keen interest in history, photography and design.
Adventures in Preservation is a non-profit organization connecting people and preservation through enriching experiential programs. AiP’s one- and two-week hands-on volunteer vacations give travelers the opportunity to truly experience their destination while learning and using hands-on skills. Volunteers help save valuable historic buildings vital to economic and environmental sustainability of the project community. Learn more at http://www.adventuresinpreservation.org.
