Preserving Modernism in a Green World

Posted on: June 24th, 2008 by Barbara Campagna

The National Building Museum is sponsoring a panel, Monday, June 30, 2008 at 6:30 pm on the intersection of Modern Heritage and Sustainability as part of its Modern Architecture series. They are offering the member rate ($12) for all National Trust staff and members. 

AIA Headquarters, Washington, DCLearn about when preservation and sustainability meet--or don't meet--in the preservation of buildings of the modern era.  These structures tend to pose significant environmental challenges for those who are interested in preserving them for their significance, yet also want them to achieve better energy efficiency.  Using the AIA’s 21st Century Workplace as a case study, panelists will consider whether new technologies and renovation strategies provide a plausible future for these often unloved buildings from the recent past.
