Description
Historic preservation and saving endangered places are the themes of this episode, outlined by host David Inge. Guests include Richard Moe, president of National Trust for Historic Preservation and David Bahlman, Executive Director, Landmarks Preservation Council of Illinois. Inge asks how do we decide what buildings are worth saving. Moe outlines the legal definition for buildings or districts to be historic, but also notes how that is not all-encompassing. Moe emphasizes that it is up to the community to decide what is worth saving to tailor it to local needs and values. Moe notes that the most vital cities combine the best of old architecture with new architecture, and how Chicago is a compelling city that subscribes to this belief. Next discussed are economic incentives to use historic preservation for residential and commercial buildings. The men then discuss Ludwig Mies van de Rohes Farnsworth House in Plano, Illinois and the preservation of the home.
