Seminar: Preservation and Creativity
Wednesday, September 28, 2011 – 8:30 am
Cleveland Urban Design Collaborative
1309 Euclid Avenue, Suite 200
Preservation is often seen as lacking architectural design creativity, or worse, as standing in the way of it. This workshop will explore the ideas about creativity that undergird this prejudice, and invite participants to consider new ways in which creativity might be rethought to formulate a more productive engagement between architecture and preservation.
