Architect Stephen Farneth to discuss preservationist view of time, March 31, University of Arizona

[Source: Brooks Jeffrey, University of Arizona] -- The Preservation Studies program of the University of Arizona's College of Architecture and Landscape Architecture will hold a public lecture by preservation architect Stephen Farneth FAIA on Friday, March 31, 2006, 4:30 p.m. at the Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering (AME) Building, Room 202 (hourly parking is available at the Park Avenue Garage).

The topic of the lecture will be "A Different Idea of Time: A Preservationist's View" consistent with the College's Spring 2006 Lecture Series theme of "Time." The illustrated lecture will discuss the difference of design life expectations between contemporary and historic buildings, fashion, and the concept of style exhaustion, as well as use obsolescence and the transitory nature of the building program. A reception will follow the lecture at the Smith House/Center for Preservation Studies (pictured above) within walking distance of the lecture auditorium.
