"Pride, Prejudice, and Precast"

presented by Theodore Prudon, FAIA President of Docomomo US and a board member of Docomomo International, adjunct professor at Columbia University GSAPP and a partner of Prudon & Partners based in New York City. Prudon was born in The Netherlands, is a practicing architect in New York City. He is licensed to practice in several states and holds an NCARB certificate. He is a Fellow of the American Institute of Architects (FAIA) and the Association for Preservation Technology (FAPT).

Prudon recieved a M. Sc. Arch from the Technical University in Delft, a M. Sc. Arch and a Ph.D. from Columbia University. His award-winning book Preservation of Modern Architecture (2008) was also translated and published in Japanese and Chinese editions.


Preservation is an ever-evolving discipline and sees a constant re-evaluation of the past. It repeats itself from generation to generation, from style to style, from place to place and now also from material to material. A building prided in one generation is often scorned the next and maybe cherished in the phase thereafter. What does this mean for our generation and modern architecture - both today and into tomorrow?
