Carlos Talero led our committee meeting discussion on the topic of  “Negotiating Historic Preservation Reviews with the Demands of a K12 School Program”. In many cities, historic preservation or landmarks review boards have become an important tool for neighborhoods to help preserve their character and important historic buildings. However, this process is often opaque. Carlos Talero discussed a case study of navigating this process, and how architect’s can help K12 clients achieve their design and programmatic goals while selling K12 projects as an asset to the neighborhood.
