Symposium Context

The Historic Preservation Lectures focus on the challenges of retaining key historic buildings and districts in Milwaukee. Global trends continue to reinforce the proposition that for many decades to come, building re-use will account for a considerable amount of work in professional architectural firms. This lecture serves as a fundamental educational tool for both students and professionals. It is part of a five-year series consisting of a fall presentation by a national or international expert in the field of adaptive reuse, followed by a spring, two day preservation symposium. The symposium brings together professionals from all areas of historic preservation with the intention of creating cooperative strategies for future heritage preservation in Milwaukee and Wisconsin.
