Join a live chat with editors and reporters from Preservation on Wednesday, March 3, from 2:00-3:00 PM EST. This is your chance to talk about the just-released Green Issue, which features a stunning cover story about the retrofitting of the Empire State Building, surprising tales about historic houses restored in a thoroughly green fashion, plus Blair Kamin’s thought-provoking tale entitled “Historic Preservation and Green Architecture: Friends or Foes?”
Kamin, who will participate in a portion of the live chat, is the architecture critic for the Chicago Tribune and a winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Criticism. He currently pens an acclaimed blog, Cityscapes, about buildings and urban spaces in Chicago. His Preservation story looks at how architects sustainably restored three Midwest landmarks: a Frank Lloyd Wright cottage in Wisconsin; the former Sears, Roebuck & Co. Power House on the west side of Chicago; and Mies van der Rohe’s celebrated S.R. Crown Hall on city’s south side.
We look forward to hearing your thoughts about Preservation – and preservation!
