How do you make a 300-year old building, built from limestone in 1731, comfortable enough for parishioners and visitors to want to attend church services? On this edition of SciTech Now, we take a look at how 21st Century technology meets 18th Century building techniques.
There is now a new monitoring software measuring temperature and humidity in the stone church known as Mission Concepcion. The University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) Graduate Department of Architecture professor and students are working with the Archdiocese and architectural firm Ford, Powell, Carson, to modify the cooling and heating system of the old church.
