Is preservation to blame for gentrifying neighborhoods? What role can it play in commemorating difficult history, or saving the planet?

On the 50th anniversary of the National Historic Preservation Act, the movement is grappling with thorny issues of authenticity, adaptation, and taste. This is not your grandmother’s preservation society.

Join moderator Christopher Lydon, host of WBUR’s Open Source for a discussion on the challenges preservationists face in the next 50 years. A reception will follow the conversation.


Max Page, director, Historic Preservation Program, University of Massachusetts Amherst

Sponsored by the Boston Society of Architects/AIA and WBUR-FM in association with ArchitectureBoston’s Fall 2015 issue, “Preserve.”
