Historical Preservation- A Radical Conservative Liberal Concept: Wayne Wood at TEDxRiversideAvondale

Widely regarded as one of the foremost chroniclers of Duval County’s history and architecture, Wayne is called “the undisputed godfather of preservation in Jacksonville.” He raises concerns about the ownership of history, restoration versus renovation, when modern becomes historic, and landmarks of the future. In his presentation, Wayne will explore the dynamics of historic preservation from both a national and local perspective.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.

About TEDx

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)
