Innovation through Preservation: Exploring the Ties Between Historic Preservation and Sustainable Design
Join us at the Landmarks Preservation Resource Center for our ongoing programs on house restoration, architecture, history and other aspects of historic preservation, community development, and urban planning.
Location: Strada Architecture, 611 William Penn Place, #700
Date: Thursday, April 6th
Time: 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Pittsburgh is home to many of the greenest and most self-sustaining buildings in the United States. However, what many fail to realize is that, often times, the greenest building is one that has already been built and that retrofitting existing structures is an immensely under-utilized method of steering a city in the direction of increased sustainability.
Join Pittsburgh History & Landmarks Foundation (PHLF) and the Green Building Alliance (GBA) for an evening in which we discuss this complex and nuanced relationship between historic preservation and green building practices and principles. This event will feature speakers who will offer perspectives that relate to historic and cultural preservation, green building and design.
Hors d’oeuvres and refreshments will be served.
PHLF and GBA members: $15
