The mission of the Historic Resources Committee (HRC) is to identify, understand, and preserve architectural heritage, both nationally and internationally. HRC is engaged in promoting the role of the historic architect within the profession through the development of information and knowledge among members, allied professional organizations, and the public.
The AIA Historic Resources Committee (HRC) is proud to offer the 2013 AIA Historic Resources Research Scholarship. This program asks one selected emerging professional (defined below) to conduct gap analysis research to determine whether the Historic American Buildings Survey (HABS) collection, housed in the Library of Congress, is meeting the needs of today’s AIA members and to make recommendations for improving its usability and fill gaps in the collection. In short, the goal is to ensure that the HABS collection is fully serving the AIA membership, particular the approximately 6,200 members of the HRC. #research #NPS #cad #Research #HistoricResourcesCommittee #HABS #SpecialProjects #scholar #HRC #historicresources
