We started our day by adding details to our floor plan drawings of the Globe Hotel. Later in the morning, we started working on our architectural investigations for the buildings. These investigations of the building include an architectural description, as well as an assessment of the interior fabric, circulation of space, finishes, and conditions. All of these contribute to the final document that will provide a more complete understanding of the building.
In the afternoon, we took a late lunch before attending the World Heritage Site Management Committee meeting. The committee discussed new building projects that are emerging around St. George’s, and how these impact the World Heritage Site. At the end of the meeting, we talked with the committee about the benefits of the work that we are doing here in Bermuda, and how it helps in developing St. George’s architectural history and approaches to preservation.
