Back to the Future

Ready for some time travel? We have landed in suburban Warwick at CCRI’s Knight Campus, the sculptural concrete megastructure built in 1968-72 (Perkins + Will Partnership et al). Here Rhode Island’s 35th Annual Historic Preservation Conference will explore concepts of the future and historic preservation, including but not limited to:

  • Post-war architecture and landscapes
  • Preservation of Modern places
  • Historic utopias, from college campuses to octagon houses to shopping malls
  • The future of place-based tourism
  • Teaching and learning about preservation in the 21st century
  • Technological advances in archaeology, historical research, building conservation
  • Preservation and popular culture
  • Interpreting difficult histories
  • Social media and crowd-sourcing
  • Climate change

The conference is a program of the Rhode Island Historical Preservation & Heritage Commission with CCRI, the City of Warwick, Warwick Historical Society, Preserve Rhode Island, and other partners.
