Lecture by Professor Renato Perucchio, University of Rochester (11:00 a.m., Bausch Auditorium at the RMSC, approx 35 minutes)

ABSTRACT - During the course of Roman civilization, and especially during the Empire, Roman engineers developed the structural form -- that is the combination of geometrical shapes and structural materials designed to carry loads in buildings -- to levels of innovation unparalleled until the introduction of structural steel and reinforced concrete in the nineteenth century.  Breaking away from the Etruscan and Hellenistic building traditions, Roman engineers used ingeniously the arch and the truss together with structural timber, masonry and pozzolanic concrete (opus caementicium) to generate a sequence of structural solutions that continued to evolve up to the later stages of the empire, giving raise to some of the most extraordinary and enduring architectural and engineering monuments ever built.

Archaeology Activity Table staffed by AIA Rochester NY Society Volunteers (11:00-3:00, RMSC)

Part of "Science Saturday" at the Rochester Museum & Science Center.  The Rochester NY Society thanks the RMSC for the chance to participate, and the Memorial Art Gallery for the loan of table materials.
