Preservation through Transformation: A Review of Recent Adaptive Reuse Projects with Meenakshi Srinivasan

October 14, 2015 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm EDT

Introduced fifty years ago to protect historically-significant buildings in New York City, the Landmarks Preservation Law has preserved and transformed countless landmarks through adaptive reuse. Join us at the Center for Architecture for a close look at key adaptive reuse projects, both recent and classic, by the architects themselves and Meenakshi Srinivasan, the Chair of the Landmarks Preservation Commission. Caterina Roiatti, a practicing architect and the co-founder of TRA Studio architecture, PLLC, will lead a discussion about the future economic, social, and environmental challenges that adaptive reuse is facing, as well as the many benefits of preservation. This program delves into the themes of our exhibition Saving Place: 50 Years of New York City Landmarks, on view through January 3 and is organized with the AIANY Historic Buildings Committee.
