Historic Preservation Podcast #1: Daniel Abramson

Jorge Otero-Pailos, director of GSAPP’s Historic Preservation Program, speaks with Daniel Abramson in advance of his Fall 2016 lecture at the school. They discuss Daniel Abramson’s book, Obsolescence: An Architectural History, in which he investigates the notion of architectural expendability and the logic by which buildings lose their value and utility.

“It seems like today in general, obsolescence has given way to new thought about comprehending and managing change… an impulse to conserve rather than expand existing resources.” – Daniel Abramson
