This day-long seminar will explore the links between historic preservation and “green” design. Old buildings offer an incredibly rich and profound record of human experience in dealing with our environment. Today, “sustainability” and “energy efficiency” have become watchwords in the real-estate industry. But what do they mean when it comes to dealing with existing structures? Subtopics of this workshop will include: inherent “green” qualities of traditional materials and design (myths and realities), using modern technology to improve energy efficiency and building performance (without compromising historic integrity), applying LEED standards to existing buildings, and case studies highlighting issues of architectural appropriateness, durability, safety, comfort and affordability. Speakers include:

Andrew Padian , a building scientist at Steven Winter Associates, (an architectural and engineering firm specializing in assessing building performance)
Francoise Bollack, AIA, award-winning architect and
Mosette Broderick, MA, NYU design professor architectural historian.
