This is a free event, but space is limited. Please register to attend.

One unintended consequence of modernism was a burgeoning preservationist movement, a largely grass-roots effort to halt the destruction of traditional urban fabric as occurred in some Pittsburgh neighborhoods. Today, modernist architecture is increasingly under threat of demolition, often in an effort to “re-stitch” the city. Does this removal merely repeat the mistakes of modernism? What is worth saving? At what cost?

Participants: Matthew Falcone, (Preservation Pittsburgh); Martin Aurand (CMU); Rob Pfaffman(Pfaffman Associates); Al Tannler (Pittsburgh History and Landmarks Foundation) and Gwendolyn Wright (Professor, Columbia GSAPP).
