Title: Respect and Reuse: Sustainable Preservation in Portland, Oregon
Author: Johnson, Bethany N., 1983-
Abstract: The 'culture of sustainability' is rapidly developing across the United States and the globe. Prompted by economic and environmental crisis, the need to understand and implement sustainable practices has become the paramount objective of the building industry. Utilization of historic preservation as a response to sustainable development is an important aspect of the building profession not yet fully understood, though its roots are found in the "new life for old buildings" movement of the 1970s. This lack of understanding is, in part, due to limited research addressing the conservation and sustainability of the existing building stock within the United States. This thesis will provide case study research on successful sustainable preservation strategies that have been filtered through the National Register of Historic Places and the LEED Green Building Rating System, helping to define the opportunities for beneficial interchange.
