PennDesign & Fitch Foundation co-sponsoring "Design + Heritage"
Concepts of heritage have evolved dramatically in the past 50 years, from the stately mansions of founding fathers to neighborhoods and landscapes, from sites of conscience to the intangible and ephemeral. Meanwhile, the basic principles of contemporary design in historic settings, as first codified in the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards in 1966, have been static. This symposium -- hosted at the University of Pennsylvania School of Design in Philadelphia -- will engage designers, scholars, educators and stewards of heritage who are at the forefront of the field to explore innovative strategies for thoughtful, creative design in historic contexts.
