New Buildings in Old Cities: Reconsidering Context in Historical Settings
"New Buildings in Old Cities: Reconsidering Context in Historical Settings"  There is an ongoing debate within the preservation and design communities about the most appropriate way to make additions to historical structures or new infill construction in historic districts.  Official regulations like the Secretary of the Interior's Standards for Rehabilitation ask that new work be both "differentiated" and "compatible," but responses to these criteria have varied from close imitation of pre-existing buildings to designs featuring forms and materials in marked contrast to the older ones.  What are the most appropriate approaches that maintain the historic character of a place without unduly limiting the judgement of contemporary designers?  This lecture will suggest some answers based on current international guidance for historic preservation and urban conversation.
