The Brutal Truth: What’s Worth Preserving for Posterity?

May 16, 2016

In celebration of the fiftieth anniversary of the National Historic Preservation Act, Adam Thomas of Historitecture speaks about the importance of this law and explains how it has affected Colorado’s urban built environment since 1966. With examples from many Front Range cities, he’ll consider the battle between two ideas— urban renewal and historic preservation—and show how this struggle has reshaped our state. He’ll challenge you to ponder what’s worth preserving for posterity.
