Launched by the Historic Preservation Program in 2012, the University of Florida’s Envision Heritage explores how new and emerging technologies can be used to document, preserve, and interpret heritage sites. The initial research projects of Envision Heritage utilize a 3D laser scanner to quickly and accurately record the physical design and conditions of historic buildings and sites. Projects include: The Bowne House, NYC; Ellis Island, NYC; The Ishtar Gate, Iraq; Miami Marine Stadium, Miami; Steinway Hall, NYC.
Morris (Marty) Hylton III is Director of Historic Preservation and Associate Scholar at the University of Florida's College of Design, Construction and Planning where his research focuses on community engagement, 3D imaging technology, and preserving heritage sites of the recent past, particularly postwar modern architecture and resources. As part of his duties at University of Florida, Marty oversees the Center for World Heritage Research and Stewardship and its Envision Heritage initiative dedicated to exploring how new and emerging technologies can be harnessed to help document, conserve and interpret historic places. He also directs the University of Florida’s Preservation Institute Nantucket, the nation’s oldest, hands-on field school dedicated to historic preservation.
