Hosted Jointly by the New England and Louisiana Chapters | 1 AIA CES Learning Unit|HSW
Join the Louisiana and New England Chapters of the ICAA for the Rum and Classic webinar. Dr. Buras will open with a few words about his new book, followed by Q&A. The title “Rum and Classic” refers to the historical connection between Louisiana and New England—via sugar and especially rum, with which workers used to be paid.
In his talk, Dr. Buras will identify the elements of Classic Urban Planning, homeostatic urban ecology, long-term master planning, and the role of architecture in forming the urban experience. He will show how he suggests to analyze the resilient and socially responsive traditional construction and infrastructure systems of the classic urban fabric, and hopes to open the door to understanding the value of traditional construction systems and the value of historic buildings, in terms of reuse and adaptation. He will briefly expound on how Classic Planning inheres energy efficiency, sustainability, and the responsible use of natural resources, and how its approach to planning is based on community aspiration and consensus.
