Preservation Conference 2011

Preservation with a Purpose

"A typical building in a North American downtown – 25 feet wide and 100 or 120 or 140 feet deep. Let's say that today we tear down one small building like this in your neighborhood. We have now wiped out the entire environmental benefit from the last 1,344,000 aluminum cans that were recycled. We've not only wasted an historic building, we've wasted months of diligent recycling by the good people of our community."--Donovan Rypkema.
