Location

What can we learn from past and present preservation efforts in Latin America?

What does the future hold for historic urban areas in our part of the world?

What can we learn from one another?

Preservation Matters will discuss these issues with international experts Gustavo F. Araoz, AIA, President of the International Council of Monuments and Sites (ICOMOS); Isabel Rigo-Savio, Professor of Architecture and Historic Preservation, Havana, Cuba; Eduardo Rojas, Principal Urban Development Specialist, Inter-American Development Bank (IADB); and John H. Stubbs, Vice President for Field Projects, World Monuments Fund (WMF).

Preservation Matters 2011 is sponsored by the Tulane School of Architecture in cooperation with Tulane’s Roger Thayer Stone Center for Latin American Studies.
