Wong Presents at UPenn’s Design + Heritage Symposium

Liliane Wong (Department Head and Professor, Interior Architecture) recently presented, Snapchatting Heritage, at the University of Pennsylvania Design + Heritage Symposium.

Snapchatting Heritage is the current work of the students of Interior Architecture’s Master of Art in Adaptive Reuse. The project which focuses on the impact of sea level rise on a neighborhood of Newport most threatened by sea level change is sponsored by the Van Beuren Charitable Foundation and the Newport Restoration Foundation. The studio uses Augmented and Virtual Reality tools and culminates in May 2017 with the students presenting their design interventions aimed at protecting the the future of this heritage district by projecting them directly onto the existing structures.
