Rand Carter, professor of art history, will speak at the International Network for the Traditional Building, Architecture and Urbanism conference in Venice from Nov. 2 to 5. The theme of the conference is "The Venice Charter Revisited." The Venice Charter was issued in 1964 by an international group of architects and scholars to promote guidelines for the preservation and conservation of historic sites. Representing the International Friends of Schinkel and its affiliate the Foerderverein Bauakademie Berlin, Carter will speak about the rebuilding of Schinkel's Baukademie (1831-1836) in the context of the reurbanization of Berlin's historic nucleus.
