A Future-Oriented Preservation

Is this an oxymoron? Can historic preservation be more about the future than the past? Atkin Olshin Schade Architects (Santa Fe, NM and Philadelphia, PA) believes so. Shawn Evans, AIA, Principal of AOS Architects, will explain their innovative approach to historic preservation and discuss the exhibition of their work currently up in Venice, Italy as part of the European Cultural Centre’s contribution to the Biennale International Architecture Exhibition. This talk will focus on a diverse set of case studies from across the country including Pueblo villages, university projects, historic sites, and abandoned ruins. Shawn will explore how change can be accommodated in significant places of the past, in ways that provide agency to contemporary peoples struggling to balance their heritage with a brighter future.
