Minding the gap: the Role of Contemporary Architecture in the Historic Enviroment

Heritage conservation is about managing change—and nowhere is this more contentious than in the historic urban environment. How do today's architects insert new buildings in cherished historic urban areas in a way that respects, reveals, and celebrates their special character while potentially creating the heritage of tomorrow?

This one-day public symposium will explore the role of contemporary architecture in the historic urban environment. A group of international architects and urban planners—including Thomas H. Beeby, Juergen Mayer H., Rafael Moneo, Richard Rogers, and Denise Scott Brown—will present their own work, illustrating a range of approaches to this challenge. The symposium will conclude with an evening panel discussion moderated by architectural critic Paul Goldberger.
