Graduate students attend the National Preservation Conference in Buffalo, NY

October 24, 2011 § Leave a comment

Graduate students Megan Klem and Karyn Reilly attended the National Trust for Historic Preservation’s 2011 Conference in Buffalo, NY last week.  The event was 3 days long, and held numerous sessions and discussions on the future of the preservation movement. It was informative, provocative, and enlightening.  The city itself is an architectural wonder, with many buildings by well-known architects, including the recently restored Martin House by architect Frank Lloyd Wright and the gorgeous terra-cotta structure of the Guaranty Building by Louis Sullivan. The students had the goal of understanding the future challenges that will face young preservationists as they enter the field. They were successful, and left the city even more passionate about the preservation movement.
