WHY RECYCLE BOTTLES BUT NOT BUILDINGS? Los Angeles Conservancy Welcomes National Trust President Richard Moe to Discuss Why Historic Preservation Is the Ultimate in Recycling.

As part of its thirtieth-anniversary celebration, the Los Angeles Conservancy will spotlight preservation as conservation at an evening with Richard Moe, president of the National Trust for Historic Preservation.  Mr. Moe will discuss historic preservation’s essential role in fighting climate change, from environmental and economic viewpoints. According to Mr. Moe: “It makes no sense to recycle bottles and newspapers, while throwing away buildings and entire neighborhoods.”

Sponsored by Robins, Kaplan, Miller & Ciresi L.L.P., the event takes place on Wednesday, November 12, from 7 to 9 p.m., at Los Angeles Center Studios, 1201 West Fifth Street in downtown Los Angeles. A reception will follow the discussion. Admission is $5; parking is free. For tickets, visit www.laconservancy.org.

Buildings, especially historic ones, are renewable resources.  The National Trust for Historic Preservation, through its Sustainability Initiative, is focusing the nation’s attention on the environmental significance and cost effectiveness of reusing existing buildings and reinvesting in historic communities. “Preservation and the reuse of existing buildings are often overlooked as a critical sustainability strategy,” said Mr. Moe. “By approaching older buildings as renewable resources, we can make a real difference in reducing climate change.”

The event’s location, Los Angeles Center Studios, is itself a prime example of recycling historic buildings: Its central Tower Building was constructed in 1958 as the headquarters for Unocal. Designed by the noted L.A. firm of Pereira & Luckman, this gem of corporate modernism has been beautifully restored to showcase its sleek black terrazzo floors, aluminum walls, and extensive use of glass. The building now thrives once again as the heart of the Los Angeles Center Studios complex.

The Los Angeles Conservancy is a nonprofit membership organization that works through education and advocacy to recognize, preserve, and revitalize the historic architectural and cultural resources of Los Angeles County.
