Adventures in Preservation


Work in 2017 will focus on two areas - documentation within Kumayri Cultural Museum-Preserve and creation of informational packets on individual buildings for distribution to potential investors. Once new investors become involved, new jobs will follow, addressing Gyumri’s greatest need. The city of Gyumri has one of the highest unemployment rates in Armenia and desperately needs the jobs restoration and heritage tourism will bring.

Documentation will consist of taking measurements and photographs, making architectural drawings, and collecting written and verbal data. The collected data will be used to find the most efficient solutions for restoration of specific buildings within the historic district. This information will be carefully packaged to guide potential funders and investors in bringing renwed life to the district, and the town.
