This month consider and, perhaps, revisit “reversibility,” one of the bedrock tenets of modern historic preservation planning and design in the U.S. In today’s era of ever-accelerating change, is it still relevant to declare that creative interventions and additions are disposable “impairments”? Or is it more relevant than ever to recognize unique craftsmanship and to honor special points in time? Considering the implications of a rapid rate of change, should people, as the late Alvin Toffler wrote in Future Shock in 1970, “concern themselves more and more with general theme rather than detail,” as they look forward? Can we “do it all”?
