Description
Cities are increasingly facing issues with modern era plazas that are in disrepair and that don't support current urban life. Historic preservation may not support current and future needs, so how much do we change versus preserve? Sensitive adaptation can lead us forward while blind preservation may set us back.

Learning Outcomes
1. Learn from three different case studies how cities, landscape architects and architects are dealing with deteriorating 60’s and 70’s plazas and balancing history with contemporary needs. 2. Hear how varied perspectives on the issue – from client / city, landscape architect, architect and public - have shaped different responses. 3. See examples of diverse ways of respecting history while addressing contemporary issues of accessibility, ecological sustainability, safety and design. 4. Participate in a discussion around the sometimes-difficult issues associated with preserve, vs restore, remodel or re-do, and how good design can transcend these issues.
