Archivists and architects approach facilities projects from two distinctly different points of view. For major renovation or building projects, the process of educating across professional boundaries can be detailed, challenging, and rewarding. This session offers the perspectives of architect-archivist pairs who are in the midst of, or have recently completed, facilities projects.
