Further AfieldSymposium - Vermont

Modernist Architecture Comes of Age: Preservation Meets Sustainability

June 25, 2010

The University of Vermont and the State of Vermont Division for Historic Preservation have organized a day-long symposium exploring the preservation of historic modernist buildings and how to rehabilitate them to be sustainable and functional in the 21st century. Today planners, architects and regulators are faced with large numbers of late modernist structures in prime locations and within institutional settings that are approaching, or already past, the 50-year benchmark for achieving historic building status. At this symposium, nationally recognized experts in the fields of historic preservation, modern architecture and sustainability will provide information about the architecture of this era, particularly in Vermont and New England, the materials commonly used, and issues associated with the aging buildings. Participants will explore strategies for rehabilitation that preserve architectural integrity as well as promote energy efficiency and sustainability.
