The Future of The Past: A Conservation Ethic for Architecture, Urbanism, and Historic Preservation, by Steven W. Semes

A comprehensive and eloquent argument for “new traditional” architecture that preserves the style and character of historic buildings. With contemporary design being redefined by architects and urbanists who are recovering the historic language associated with traditional architecture and the city, how might preservation change its focus or update its mission? Steven W. Semes makes a persuasive case that context matters and that new buildings and additions to old buildings should be harmonious with their neighbors.
