    HISTORIC PRESERVATION IN SUB-SAHARAN AFRICA

    The overwhelming cultural and architectural diversity of the African continent is united by the shared experience of wholesale exploitation and colonization by outside forces. Though many world regions grapple with the complications of post-colonialism, this problem is especially acute in sub-Saharan Africa, where this legacy pervades all contemporary experiences, including heritage conservation. — Published 2009.0916

    PRESERVATION IN PORTLAND

    The recent threat of demolition to Memorial Coliseum in Portland, Oregon, one of the city's most visible architectural landmarks, galvanized local architects and historic preservation advocates.

    HELLO LEED V3!

    The U.S. Green Building Council is rolling out the long-awaited LEED Version 3 on April 27, 2009. It's been ten years since the first LEED version was released in 1999, and this release is intended to initiate a pattern of biennial updates.

    The green building industry has been asking for changes to LEED for some time. One of the criticisms of the current LEED Version 2 has been the inequity of the one-point-per-strategy system. — Published 2009.0415

    THE SALTBOX AND THE CHIMNEY

    Probably the most classic and memorable of New England central-chimney houses had a two-story front and a long roofline sloping down to one story in the rear. It went by several names. Saltbox is the most familiar term, reflecting the look of a once-familiar container. — Published 2008.0102

    HOUSE RECYCLING

    Depending on your generation, you may have been taught: "Waste not, want not." Thrift is certainly one incentive for deconstructing buildings for reuse. In addition, many of us are motivated by a desire to be environmentally sensitive, a fondness for antiques and other items from the past, a yearning to have more control over the quality of materials used in construction, or a recognition that many of the materials available for salvage are of higher quality than those produced today. — Published 2007.0530
