Preservation of Modernist Architecture

France and Florida : two perspectives on the preservation of Modernist Architecture in comparison

Tuesday May 1 • 6:30pm

France and the United States have different views on heritage preservation. The conference will highlight the challenges of preserving historical buildings and in particular of 20th century architecture. The speakers’ presentations will be based on specific cases, like the documentation experience of Docomomo, or the struggle for the protection of the Marine Stadium and the Art Deco District in Miami or the “Villa Savoye”, in Poissy (France), a building considered to be Le Corbusier’s manifesto on new architecture.
