Description

Society of Architectural Historians lecture, "A Few Stones Left Upon One Another: Historic Preservation."

Historic preservation as a way of shaping the world -- not simply conserving it -- has roots in John Ruskin's states sixth lamp of architecture, memory. There may not be one way we choose to bring buildings and places forward, and the American preservation practice contains several schools of thought. This talk by Michael Allen examines the variety of philosophies and outcomes in several local preservation projects across time.
