Clay poultice is used to draw copper staining out of the stone in the St. Patrick’s Cathedral restoration project. The clay is mixed with chemicals, applied to the stone, and allowed to dry. As the clay dries, the chemicals pull copper stains out of the stone (as seen on the left of this photo). Once the clay is dry, it is washed away, leaving a cleaner, whiter marble surface. -Sarah Rosenblatt, Preservationist at MBB

MBB’s office was closed for a week during and after Hurricane Sandy.  The devastation along the coast brought us to revisit the issue of emergency housing in the aftermath of such a storm.  When Katrina hit New Orleans the City of New York’s Office of Emergency Management sponsored a competition entitled “What if NYC…”. Our winning entry envisioned Community Provisional Residences (CPR) which is temporary housing in a box that can be individually deployed or stacked in a multi-family configuration.  The CPR unit is designed to be assembled by two people in six hours and can be disassembled and redeployed to new disaster locations.
