Preservation Is…

Probably the greatest cultural value of preservation is allowing people to live and work in a world that continually gives reminders of what has been accomplished in the past as well as what is being accomplished today.

-Richard Longstreth, Directer of the Graduate Program in Historic Preservation at George Washington University

Longstreth has written extensively about how the automobile changed buildings and cities and about preservation of the recent past. Image via Sky Scraper City
