Who we are

The mission of the Historic Resources Committee (HRC) is to identify, understand, and preserve architectural heritage, both nationally and internationally. HRC is engaged in promoting the role of the historic architect within the profession through the development of information and knowledge among members, allied professional organizations, and the public.

We hope you'll join us February 7-8 at the annual HRC Taliesin Colloquium where we'll discuss how codes have impacted existing buildings and what to expect from upcoming code changes.

    This year's colloquium will focus on historic structure reports and how technology is impacting those reports. A historic structure report provides documentary, graphic, and physical information about a property's history and existing condition. Broadly recognized as an effective part of preservation planning, a historic structure report also addresses management or owner goals for the use or re-use of the property. It provides a thoughtfully considered argument for selecting the most appropriate approach to treatment, prior to the commencement of work, and outlines a scope of recommended work. Finally, it records the findings of research and investigation, as well as the processes of physical work, for future researchers.

    The AIA Taliesin Colloquium at Taliesin West is sponsored and hosted by the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation for the AIA Historic Resources Committee.
