The Fitch Colloquium:
Beyond the Five Boroughs: International Preservation Insights

Saturday, October 17, 2015 10:00am
Wood Auditorium

As Columbia University’s contribution to the Landmarks 50 celebration—the recognition of the fiftieth anniversary of the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission—this year’s Fitch Colloquium looks beyond the laws of New York City to preservation frameworks elsewhere in the world. With the understanding there much New Yorkers can learn from international practice and problems, we gather leading preservationists from London, Los Angeles, Mumbai, Oslo, Puerto Rico, and Rio de Janeiro, to speak about their local perspectives. An introduction provided by Will Cook of the National Trust for Historic Preservation’s legal staff will set up the discussion for comparative practices around the country and world.
