The California Preservation Conference brings dedicated participants from across the state to learn, network, and share successes. The 4-day event from May 8-11 includes over 40 sessions, special events, networking activities, and site tours in and around Palm Springs, CA. With this year’s theme, “Preservation Springs Eternal”, attendees will explore the innovative methods and strategies that architects, designers, planners, local advocates, and others use in the ongoing fight to preserve cultural landscape and architectural resources.
Willett is participating and speaking in two events during the course of the conference; a mobile workshop on Thursday, May 9th alongside Janice Lyle, Michaeleen Gallagher and Kelly Reynolds titled, “Preservation, Sustainability, and Reuse of the Sunnylands Cultural Landscape”, as well as session on Friday, May 10th with Dr. Linda L. Day and Roshni Thomas titled, “The Modernist Architecture and Planning Legacy in the Public Sphere: What To Preserve and What to Replace”. Following this conference all will be challenged to apply the information gathered in their communities to continue the work of protecting California’s heritage for future generations.
