2022 Taliesin Colloquium

We must ask if the current policies and standards continue to be viable as the world is far different than it was when the standards were written. The current climate crisis has changed codes and regulations and goals toward sustainable building practices. Equally, our understanding of the need for historic preservation to take on a more holistic view of sustainability including social, cultural, and economic equity has intensified and calls for us to look closely as to whether current standards are inclusive or exclusive.  

Are the current policies and practices of historic preservation still valid or must they mature to meet the current challenges?

How can we respond to these challenges and prepare for the future?

Do policies and practices need to be open to change?

Some say that current standards provide the required flexibility and that that it is the interpretation that has become too rigid. Others believe that we need additional standards to address issues of social and economic equity.

This Colloquium will take a deep dive into the global issues that preservationists face today and the Standards and Guidelines that have been the backbone of our practice.
