The Art of Preservation
When you think of historic preservation, what comes to mind? Artifacts? Archeological digs? Or do you think of heritage?
While the art of preservation may be a meticulous process, it is well worth the effort when you consider how preservation can provide something that new construction cannot―heritage.
The ability to reveal history through intentional design can help unite and strengthen communities by offering a lens for people to explore, question and inevitably understand what was. CPL often uses this design approach to help restore and modernize community spaces because it allows for a historical leap forward, while remaining true to a Town or City’s heritage.
