Illinois Humanities @ CAF Value and Viability

December 10, 2015 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm EST

Which buildings do we save and which do we raze? Often, architects, community members, developers, and other stakeholders disagree about which buildings we should save and why. Some see aesthetics and the preservation of the past as the main values to preserving community while others see economics and the opportunity to create anew as necessary for a community’s growth.
