Jorge Otero-Pailos, director of GSAPP’s Historic Preservation Program, speaks with faculty and alumni Barbara Campagna (MSHP ‘86) during the Spring 2019 semester. Barbara Campagna is an architect, planner, and historian who reinvents and restores historic and existing buildings, focusing on the adaptive use of historic asylums and prisons. She is founder of BAC/A+P, an architectural firm rooted in the belief that historic preservation values equal the best of green building practices.
During the conversation, Campagna introduces us to a number of projects based in her home town of Buffalo, NY. They also discuss the role of preservation in city re-building, and how New York State’s rehabilitation tax credit has affected the city of Buffalo.
