Heritage conservation is about managing change—and nowhere is this more contentious than in the historic urban environment. How do today's architects insert new buildings in cherished historic urban areas in a way that respects, reveals, and celebrates their special character while potentially creating the heritage of tomorrow?
This one-day public symposium will explore the role of contemporary architecture in the historic urban environment. A group of international architects and urban planners—including
Juergen Mayer H. http://www.jmayerh.de/1-0-Architecture-Design-Research.html,
Richard Meier http://www.richardmeier.com/www/,
Rafael Moneo http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rafael_Moneo,
Richard Rogers http://www.richardrogers.co.uk/rshp_home,
and Denise Scott Brown http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Venturi
will present their own work, illustrating a range of approaches to this challenge.
The symposium will conclude with an evening panel discussion moderated by architectural critic Paul Goldberger.
This event complements the GCI's Conserving Modern Architecture and Historic Cities and Urban Settlements Initiatives and is being presented in conjunction with Pacific Standard Time Presents: Modern Architecture in L.A.
