Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"[T]he best published overview of historic preservation... I use it as a course text." --Lauren Sickels-Taves, architectural conservator, Henry Ford Museum & Greenfield Village Historic Preservation provides a thorough overview of the theory, technique, and procedure for preserving our architectural heritage. The perfect introduction for architecture students, local officials, community leaders, and the interested layperson, it covers preservation philosophy, the history of the movement, the role of national, state, and local government, the designation and documentation of historic structures, establishing a historic district, architectural styles, sensitive architectural design and planning, preservation technology, and the economics of building rehabilitation.

Book News Annotation:

In non-technical language, architect Tyler (historic preservation, Eastern Michigan U.) explains the philosophy and history of the movement, the role of government, the documentation and designation of historic properties, establishing a historical district, sensitive architectural design and planning, technology, and economics. He illustrates many of the terms in the glossary, but does not indicate how to pronounce them. The 1994 edition was titled Issues in Historic Preservation.
