In thinking about how to build a more sustainable future, the preservation of our historic buildings needs to be prioritized. But when buildings can't be saved, there is still room for preservation to play a role. Deconstruction and architectural salvage allows heritage building materials to be saved and repurposed, diverting material from the landfill and creating a circular economy in the process.
We'll be joined by practitioners from around the country who are exploring how preservation and deconstruction can work hand-in-hand to create a more just and sustainable world.
Presented in partnership with Historic Ithaca. Moderated by Christine O'Malley, Historic Ithaca's Preservation Services Coordinator and partner of the CR0WD (Circularity, Reuse, Zero Waste Development) working group.
