The quest for sustainability will increasingly concentrate development in cities, generating a greater union of new and old architecture, especially as policy incentives are implemented that encourage major additions to existing buildings. San Francisco architect Charles Bloszies, AIA, author of Old Buildings, New Designs; Architectural Transformations, scheduled for publication by Princeton Architectural Press in Fall 2011, leads a discussion on the issues of architectural form and public process raised by this prospect. The panel includes Liz Dunn, developer and Consulting Director of the National Trust's Preservation Green Lab, and Trevor Boddy, Vancouver-based critic, curator and historian of architecture and consulting urban designer, and will be moderated by David Meckel, FAIA, Director of Research & Planning. He co-founded the Interior Architecture program at Otis Art Institute in Los Angeles with Richard Saul Wurman, and was the founding dean of the Architecture program at California College of the Arts in San Francisco.
