Call for Case Studies: Energy and Climate Change in Modern Buildings

May 21, 2016

Older buildings, especially those of the Modern period, can get a bad rap in terms of energy efficiency. However, as preservationists will argue, the greenest building is the one that’s already there. In that vein, the Getty’s Conservation of Modern Architecture Initiative is seeking inspiring case studies from around the world that balance climate concerns with best practices in the preservation and conservation of Modern architecture. Selected projects will be featured in the second volume of its publication series, Conserving Modern Heritage, Case Studies From the Field. Deadline for submission is June 1, 2016. Details can be found here.
