The Architecture of Public Housing: Preserving a Post-War Legacy
Following World War II, the United States and Europe sought to address the dire need for public and affordable housing through new building. The decades after war saw the development of many innovative design, 
construction and social arrangements. This legacy represents an important part of our collective architectural and cultural heritage but its preservation is plagued by many practical and social issues. By bringing
together American and International experts, the Fitch 
Colloquium seeks to create a dialogue about the preservation of these buildings, which are at the intersection of social, physical, cultural and architectural values.
