Historic preservation is a remarkably complex field in terms of technical expertise, legal know-how, and aesthetic intervention. Last week’s Trading Notes, “Approaches to Architectural Preservation and Adaptive Re-Use,” explored this topic with Omgivning founder and principal Karin Liljegren, Kliment Halsband founding partner Frances Halsband, and Beyer Blinder Belle partner and director of historical preservation Richard Southwick. The three panelists, based in Los Angeles and New York, discussed subtle design and infrastructural measures, upgrading neglected structures for contemporary uses, and their methodologies in approaching projects. A recording of the panel can be accessed at the Trading Notes website.
Tune in at 1:00 p.m. EST today for “Experimentation in Architectural Ceramics,” with Matter Factory founder Andy Brayman, Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects principal Craig Copeland, STUDIOS associate principal Graham Clegg, Walter P Moore managing director Erik Verboon, and head of the School of Architecture at Carnegie Mellon University Omar Khan.
