For some decades, San Francisco and other preservation-minded cities have been requiring architects to preserve, in whole or in part, older buildings within new construction.  Please join the ICAA and Chapter President, Coby Everdell, for a lively moderated panel discussion with two well-known architects involved in this phenomenon to debate the causes and consequences, pluses and minuses, of the work of “adaptive re-use.” Steven Semes is the author of "The Future of the Past: A Conservation Ethic for Architecture, Urbanism, and Historic Preservation" and professor at the University of Notre Dame School of Architecture, where he is also the founding director of the graduate program in historic preservation. Charles Bloszies, FAIA is author of “Old Buildings, New Designs" and architect of many adaptive re-use projects in San Francisco, including the resurrected San Francisco Chronicle Building, now the Ritz-Carlton Residences on Market Street, as well as the former Mutual Savings Bank at 1 Kearny Street.
