Whether they are preserving thousand-year-old terraces in China or medieval French churches, preservationists around the world face many of the same challenges. How to design compatible additions to historic buildings? Should sacred spaces be repurposed? Is commercialism of historic sites a good idea? What is the best way to tell the story of indigenous people? How can historic places remain sustainable? Learn from your international colleagues how they approach these preservation issues and enjoy several delightful “preservation travelogues” (slide shows) that take you to beautiful historic places in China and England.

Travel abroad with Forum—no backpack needed.
