Practical Preservation Podcast featuring Liz Waytkus of Docomomo US

On this week’s episode of the Practical Preservation Podcast Danielle spoke with Liz Waytkus, Executive Director of the United States chapter of Docomomo International, a non-profit organization dedicated to the documentation and conservation of buildings, sites and neighborhoods of the modern movement for nearly 25 years.

Danielle and Liz discussed the importance of local, state, and national designation of historically relevant architecture.  Liz’s  article for Dezeen on the demolition of Marcel Breuer’s Geller I house goes into detail about how this type of designation could have saved this significant piece of modern American architecture.
