Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
In 2013, the Getty Conservation Institute (GCI) partnered with the Salk Institute to address the aging and long-term care of one of the site’s major architectural elements—the teak window wall assemblies, which are set within the buildings’ monolithic concrete walls. The resulting project—the Salk Institute for Biological Studies Conservation Project—was divided into two phases: (1) Phase 1: Research and Investigation; and (2) Phase 2: On-Site Trial Mock-Ups. The results of this work informed by the detailed designs developed by the Salk’s architectural consultant and construction project for the window wall assemblies that was undertaken in 2016‒2017. This report presents the results of Phase 1 of the project (2013‒2014), which included historical research and assessment of significance; preliminary condition assessment, scientific research, and diagnosis of weathering and deterioration mechanisms; and development of conservation policies and preliminary treatment recommendations
