Lecture With Steven Semes: The Future Of The PastRegister Now!

Wednesday, March 10; Reception and Book Signing at 6:30 pm; Lecture at 7:00 pm

Co-sponsored with The New York Landmarks Conservancy
The Future of the Past: A Conservation Ethic for Architecture, Urbanism, and Historic Preservation was selected by Planetizen as one of the top ten most important books on urbanism and planning published in 2009. Steven Semes, Director of the Rome Studies Program for Notre Dame’s School of Architecture, is also the author of The Architecture of the Classical Interior (W.W. Norton), and Fellow Emeritus of the ICA&CA. His new book argues that the wholeness and continuity of the historic setting is paramount; and that traditional architecture holds the promise of continuity in the historic built environment. Books will be available for sale at the event.
