Join Christine Franck and AIA Colorado’s Regional and Urban Design Knowledge Community for Historic Preservation Discussion

From AIA Colorado Regional and Urban Design Knowledge Community: This March we’ll dive into the realm of historic preservation with a round table showcasing a few of our very own AIA Colorado member principals and directors who have firsthand experience working on these properties and the policies which surround them. The round table will consist of presentations from our featured guests followed by a discussion of current policy surrounding the subject of historic preservation and what we can do within our own communities in this regard.

Joining us to share their expertise include:

Nan Anderson, FAIA, 2018 AIA Architect of the year, representing Anderson Hallas in Golden, CO for their work with historic preservation throughout the state.

Cristof Eigelberger, AIA, international architect and founding principal of Eigelberger Architecture and Design, previous architectural associate at Backen, Gillam, and Kroeger, and now based in Aspen, CO and Los Angeles, CA.

Christine Franck, AIA, the first executive director of the Institute of Classical Architecture and Art, and founding principal of Christine G.H . Franck Architecture, based in Denver, CO.

Sarah Broughton, AIA, 2020 AIA Colorado Western Director and previous chair of the City of Aspen’s Historic Preservation Commission, providing both Aspen, CO and Denver, CO perspectives.

Join us in celebrating these renegades not only their work on Nationally Registered Historic Sites but also their experience with historic preservation and its political arena.

Closing Remarks, Three Generations of Classical Architects: The Renewal of Modern Architecture, University of Notre Dame School of Architecture (2005)

I am charged with offering concluding remarks and answering the questions of what the future holds and what challenges we face to meet that future. Before I do, I would like to thank our hosts and offer a special thanks to Michael Lykoudis for his vision for this conference. I also would like to take this opportunity to thank those people who have been so critical to the path of my own career – Bill Westfall, Thomas Gordon Smith, Rodney Cook, Richard John and my dear friends at the Institute.

Now, what challenges do we face and how do we meet them? Well, to consider this, I am first going to take my gloves off for a moment and succumb to what I would call realism, or what Michael Lykoudis has called pessimism, and then I will put my gloves back on and, hopefully, conclude on a polite, optimistic note.
